* r409: * Corrected globbing issue with dh_movefiles in v3 mode. Closes: #81431joey2001-01-22

* r398: * If DH_COMPAT=3 is set, the following happens:joey2000-11-28
| | | | | | | | - Various debian/foo files like debian/docs, debian/examples, etc, begin to support filename globbing. use \* to escape the wildcards of course. I doubt this will bite anyone (Debian doesn't seem to contain files with "*" or "?" in their names..), but it is guarded by v3 just to be sure. Closes: #34120, #37694, #39846, #46249

* r392: * DH_COMPAT=3 now enables the following new features which I can't justjoey2000-11-27
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | turn on by default for fear of breaking backwards compatability: - dh_makeshlibs makes the postinst/postrm call ldconfig. Closes: #77154 Patch from Masato Taruishi <> (modified). If you use this, be sure dh_makeshlibs runs before dh_installdeb; many old rules files have the ordering backwards. - dh_installdeb now causes all files in /etc to be registered as conffiles. - debian/README is now supported: it is treated exactly like debian/README.Debian. Either file is installed as README.Debian in non-native packages, and now as just README in native packages. Closes: #34628 * This is really only the start of the changes for v3, so use with caution.. * dh_du has finally been removed. It has been deprecated for ages, and a grep of the archive shows that nothing is using it except biss-awt and scsh. I filed bugs on both almost exactly a year ago. Those bugs should now be raised to severity important.. * --number option (to dh_installemacsen) is removed. It has been deprecated for a while and nothing uses it. Use --priority instead.

| | | | | | | debian/package.filename. Closes: #69453 * Added a section to debhelper(1) about files in debian/ used by debhelper, which documents this. Removed scattered references to debian/filename from all over the man pages.
* r359: * I started work on debhelper v2 over a year ago, with a long list ofjoey2000-07-19
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | changes I hoped to get in that broke backwards compatability. That development stalled after only the most important change was made, although I did get out over 100 releases in the debhelper 2.0.x tree. In the meantime, lots of packages have switched to using v2, despite my warnings that doing so leaves packages open to being broken without notice until v2 is complete. * Therefore, I am calling v2 complete, as it is. Future non-compatabile changes will happen in v3, which will be started soon. This means that by using debhelper v2, one major thing changes: debhelper uses debian/<package> as the temporary directory for *all* packages; debian/tmp is no longer used to build binary packages out of. This is very useful for multi-binary packages, and I reccommend everyone switch to v2. * Updated example rules files to use v2 by default. * Updated all documentation to assume that v2 is being used. * Added a few notes for people still using v1. * Moved all of the README into debhelper(1).
* r343: * Detect changelog parse failures and use a better error message.joey2000-04-09

* r340: * Patch from Jorgen `forcer' Schaefer <forcer at> (muchjoey2000-03-03
modified)to make dh_installwm use new window manager registration method, update-alternatives. Closes: #52156, #34684 (latter bug is obsolete) * Fixed $dh{flavor} to be upper-case. * Deprecated dh_installemavcsen --number; use --priority instead. Also, the option parser requires the parameter be a number now. And, dh_installwm now accepts --priority, and window manager packages should start using it. * dh_installwm now behaves like a proper debhelper command, and reads debian/<package>.wm too. This is a small behavior change; filenames specified on the command line no longer apply to all packages it acts on. I can't belive this program existed for 2 years with such a glaring problem; I guess most people don't need ot register 5 wm's in 3 sub-packages. Anyway, it can handle such things now. :-) * Moved Dh_*.pm to /usr/lib/perl5/Debian/Debhelper. *big* change.
