* r478: * dh_gencontrol: Work around very strange hurd semanticsjoey2001-06-11
| | | | which allow "" to be an empty file. Closes: #100542
* r475: * dh_gencontrol: Added a documented interface for specifying substvarsjoey2001-06-03
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | data in a file. Substvars data may be put in debian/package.substvars. (Those files used to be used by debhelper for automatically generated data, but it uses a different internal filename now). It will be merged with any automatically determined substvars data. See bug #98819 * I want to stress that no one should ever rely in internal, undocumented debhelper workings. Just because debhelper uses a certian name for some internally used file does not mean that you should feel free to modify that file to your own ends in a debian package. If you do use it, don't be at all suprised when it breaks. If you find that debhelper is lacking a documented interface for something that you need, ask for it! (debhelper's undocumented, internal use only files should now all be prefixed with ".debhelper")
* r472: * Fixed issues with extended parameters to dh_gencontrol including ↵joey2001-05-29
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | spaces and quotes. This was some histirical cruft that deals with splitting up the string specified by -u, and it should not have applied to the set of options after --. Now that it's fixed, any and all programs that support a -- and options after it, do not require any special quoting of the succeeding options. Quote just like you would in whatever program those options go to. So, for example, dh_gencontrol -Vblah:Depends='foo, bar (>= 1.2)' will work just as you would hope. This fix does NOT apply to -u; don't use -u if you must do something complex. Closes: #89311 * Made escape_shell output a lot better.

* r410: * Added the ability to make debhelper read a different file thanjoey2001-01-25

* r338: * Patch from Jorgen `forcer' Schaefer <forcer at mindless.com> (muchjoey2000-03-02
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | 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 Closes: #52156, #34684 (latter bug is obsolete) * Fixed $dh{flavor} to be upper-case.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.
