* r518: * dh_movefiles has long been a sore point in debhelper. Inheritedjoey2002-04-12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | from debstd, its interface and implementation suck, and I have maintained it while never really deigning to use it. Now there is a remplacment: dh_install, which ... - copies files, doesn't move them. Closes: #75360, #82649 - doesn't have that whole annoying debian/package.files vs. debian/files mess, as it uses debian/install. - supports copying empty subdirs. Closes: #133037 - doesn't use tar, thus no error reproting problems. Closes: #112538 - files are listed relative to the pwd, debian/tmp need not be used at all, so no globbing issues. Closes: #100404 - supports -X. Closes: #116902 - the whole concept of moving files out of a directory is gone, so this bug doesn't really apply. Closes: #120026 - This is exactly what Bill Allombert asked for in #117383, even though I designed it seemingly independantly. Thank you Bill! Closes: #117383 * Made debhelper's debian/rules a lot simpler by means of the above. * Updated example rules file to use dh_install. Also some reordering and other minor changes. * dh_movefiles is lightly deprecated, and when you run into its bugs and bad design, you are incouraged to just use dh_install instead. * dh_fixperms: in v4 only, make all files in bin/ dirs +x. Closes: #119039 * dh_fixperms: in v4 only, make all files in etc/init.d executable (of course there's -X ..) * dh_link: in v4 only, finds existing, non-policy-conformant symlinks and corrects them. This has the side effect of making dh_link idempotent. * Added a -h/--help option. This seems very obvious, but it never occured to me before.. * use v4 for building debhelper itself * v4 mode is done, you may now use it without fear of it changing. (This idea of this upload is to get v4 into woody so people won't run into many issues backporting from sarge to woody later on. Packages targeted for woody should continue to use whatever compatability level they are using.)

Whether this additional bloat is worth it to make it easier for people to sh -x a script by hand is debatable either way, I guess.

| | | | | | | | - 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

* r383: * dh_movefiles: no longer does the symlink ordering hack, asjoey2000-11-06
| | | | | | | | | | this is supported by dpkg itself now. Added a dependancy on dpkg-dev >= 1.7.0 to make sure this doesn't break anything. * While I'm updating for dpkg 1.7.0, I removed the -ldirectory hack from dh_shlibdeps; dpkg-shlibdeps has its own much more brutal hack to make this work. The switch is ignored now for backwards compatability. * dh_suidregister will be deprecated soon -- dpkg-statoverride is a much better way.
* r378: * dh_movefiles: fixed a regexp quoting problem with --sourcedir.joey2000-10-23
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Closes: #75434 * Whoops, I think I overwrote bod's NMU with 2.2.15. Let's merge those in: . debhelper (2.1.14-0.1) unstable; urgency=low . * Non-maintainer upload (thanks Joey). * dh_installchangelogs, dh_installdocs: allow dangling symlinks for $TMP/usr/share/doc/$PACKAGE (useful for multi-binary packages). Closes: #53381 . -- Brendan O'Dea <bod@debian.org> Fri, 20 Oct 2000 18:11:59 +1100 . I also added some documentation to debhelper.1 about this, and removed the TODO entry about it.
* 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).
* r352: * dh_installmodules will now install modiles even if etc/modutils ↵joey2000-06-26
| | | | | | | | | already exists (wasn't because of a logic error). Closes: #66289 * dh_movefiles now uses debian/movelist, rather than just movelist. This is to fix an unlikely edge case involving a symlinked debian directory. Closes: #66278
* 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.
