* 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).

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | 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 Closes: #52156, #34684 (latter bug is obsolete) * Fixed $dh{flavor} to be upper-case.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.

* r266: * FHS complience. Patch from Johnie Ingram <>.joey1999-09-06
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | For the most part, this was a straight-forward substitution, dh_installmanpages needed a non-obvious change though. * Closes: #42489, #42587, #41732. * dh_installdocs: Adds code to postinst and prerm as specified in, to make /usr/doc/<package> a compatability symlink to /usr/share/doc/<package>. Note that currently if something exists in /usr/doc/<package> when the postinst is run, it will silently not make the symlink. I'm considering more intellingent handing of this case. * Note that if you build a package with this version of debhelper, it will use /usr/share/man, /usr/share/doc, and /usr/share/info. You may need to modify other files in your package that reference the old locations.
