debhelper (2.0.60) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_compress: After compressing an executable, changes the file mode to
    644. Executable .gz files are silly. Closes: #46383

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed,  6 Oct 1999 13:05:14 -0700

debhelper (2.0.59) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installdocs: if $TMP/usr/share/doc/$PACKAGE is a broken symlink,
    leaves it alone, assumming that the maintainer knows what they're doing
    and is probably linking to the doc dir of another package. 
    (Closes: #46183)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon,  4 Oct 1999 16:27:28 -0700

debhelper (2.0.58) unstable; urgency=low

  * Dh_Lib.pm: fixed bug in xargs() that made boundry words be skipped.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sun,  3 Oct 1999 18:55:29 -0700

debhelper (2.0.57) unstable; urgency=low

  * Added note to man pages of commands that use autoscript to note they are
    not idempotent.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri,  1 Oct 1999 13:18:20 -0700

debhelper (2.0.56) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fiddlesticks. The neat make trick I was using in rules.multi2 failed if
    you try to build binary-indep and binary-arch targets in the same make
    run. Make tries to be too smart. Modified the file so it will work,
    though it's now uglier. Closes: 46287
  * examples/*: It's important that one -not- use a install-stamp target.
    Install should run every time binary-* calls it. Otherwise if a binary-*
    target is called twice by hand, you get duplicate entries in the
    maintainer script fragment files. Closes: #46313

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu, 30 Sep 1999 12:01:40 -0700

debhelper (2.0.55) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fixed quoting problem in examples/rules.multi (Closes: #46254)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed, 29 Sep 1999 12:06:59 -0700

debhelper (2.0.54) unstable; urgency=low

  * Enhanced debconf support -- the database is now cleaned up on package
    purge.
  * Broke all debconf support off into a dh_installdebconf script. This
    seems conceptually a little cleaner.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 28 Sep 1999 16:12:53 -0700

debhelper (2.0.53) unstable; urgency=low

  * Minor changes to rules.multi2.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 27 Sep 1999 13:57:17 -0700

debhelper (2.0.52) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_movefiles: if the wildcards in the filelist expand to nothing,
    don't do anything, rather than crashing.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu, 23 Sep 1999 15:18:00 -0700

debhelper (2.0.51) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installdocs: create the compatability symlink before calling
    install-docs. I'm told this is better in some cases. (Closes: #45608)
  * examples/rules.multi2: clarified what you have to comment/uncomment.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 20 Sep 1999 12:43:09 -0700

debhelper (2.0.50) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Oops. Fixed dh_shlibdeps so it actually generates dependancies, broke in
    last version.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sat, 18 Sep 1999 19:00:10 -0700

debhelper (2.0.49) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_shlibdeps: detect statically linked binaries and don't pass them to
    dpkg-shlibdeps.
  * dh_installdeb: debconf support.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 17 Sep 1999 00:28:59 -0700

debhelper (2.0.48) unstable; urgency=low

  * 4 whole days without a debhelper upload! Can't let that happen. Let's see..
  * dh_installperl.1: explain what you have to put in your control file
    for the dependancies to be generated.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu, 16 Sep 1999 21:15:05 -0700

debhelper (2.0.47) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_undocumented: installs links for X11 man pages to the undocumented.7
    page in /usr/share/man. (Closes: #44909)

debhelper (2.0.46) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installemacsen: the script fragments it generates now test for the
    existance of emacs-package-install/remove before calling them. Though
    a strict reading of the emacsen policy indicates that such a test
    shouldn't be needed, there may be edge cases (cf bug 44924), where it
    is.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sun, 12 Sep 1999 12:54:37 -0700

debhelper (2.0.45) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installdocs.1: clarified how the doc-id is determined. Closes: #44864
  * dh_makeshlibs: will now overwrite existing debian/tmp/DEBIAN/shlibs
    files, instead of erroring out. (Closes: #44828)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sat, 11 Sep 1999 13:15:33 -0700

debhelper (2.0.44) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installinfo: failed pretty miserably if the info file's section
    contained '/' characters. Doesn't now.

debhelper (2.0.41) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installinfo: use FHS info dir. I wonder how I missed that..

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon,  6 Sep 1999 13:22:08 -0700

debhelper (2.0.40) unstable; urgency=low

  * FHS complience. Patch from Johnie Ingram <johnie@netgod.net>.
    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
    http://www.debian.org/Lists-Archives/debian-ctte-9908/msg00038.html,
    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.

debhelper (2.0.30) unstable; urgency=low

  * It turns out it's possible to set up make variables that are specific to
    a single target of a Makefile. This works tremendously well with
    DH_OPTIONS: no need to put "-i" or "-pfoo" after every debhelper command
    anymore.
  * debhelper.1: mentioned above technique.
  * examples/rules.multi: use the above method to get rid of -i's and -a's.
  * examples/rules.multi2: new file, example of a multi-binary package that
    works for arch-indep and arch-dependant packages, and also allows
    building of single binary packages independntly, via binary-<package>
    targets. It accomplishes all this using only one list of debhelper
    commands.
  * examples/*: removed source and diff targets. They've been obsolete for 2
    years -- or is it 3? No need for a nice error message on failure anymore.

debhelper (2.0.28) unstable; urgency=low

  * Oops, dh_installpam was omitted from the package. Added back. 
    Closes: #43652

debhelper (2.0.27) unstable; urgency=low

  * No user visible changes. Modified the package to interface better with
    my new local build system, which auto-updates the home page when a new
    debhelper is built.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu, 26 Aug 1999 23:20:40 -0700

debhelper (2.0.25) unstable; urgency=low

  * Corrected debian/fixlinks to make the correct debian/* symlinks needed
    for building debhelper.
  * Fixed rules file to create and populate examples and docs dirs. Oops.

debhelper (2.0.24) unstable; urgency=low

debhelper (2.0.23) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fixed makefile commit target.
  * Misc changes to make CVS dirs not be copies into package.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 16 Aug 1999 22:43:39 -0700

debhelper (2.0.22) unstable; urgency=low

  * Checked all of debhelper into CVS.
  * Removed Test.pm (we have perl 5.005 now)
  * Skip CVS dir when running tests.
  * Since CVS is so brain dead about symlinks, added a debian/fixlinks script.
    Modified debian/rules to make sure it's run if any of the symlinks are
    missing. Also, made Makefile a short file that sources debian/rules so
    it's always available.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 16 Aug 1999 22:35:12 -0700

debhelper (2.0.21) unstable; urgency=low

  * Wow. It turns out dh_installdocs has been doing it wrong and doc-base
    files have the doc-id inside them. Applied and modified a patch from
    Peter Moulder <reiter@netspace.net.au> to make it use those id's instead
    of coming up with it's own. (Closes: #42650)

debhelper (2.0.20) unstable; urgency=low

debhelper (2.0.18) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installxaw: fixed multiple stanza problem, for real this time (patch
    misapplied last time). (Closes: #41862)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 26 Jul 1999 13:00:09 -0700

debhelper (2.0.17) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_clean: compat() wasn't exported.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed, 21 Jul 1999 12:49:52 -0700

debhelper (2.0.16) unstable; urgency=low

  * Dh_lib.pm: when looking for debhelper files in debian/, test with -f,
    not with -e, because it might fail if you're building a package named,
    say, 'docs', with a temp dir of debian/docs. I don't anticipate this
    ever happenning, but it pays to be safe.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 20 Jul 1999 21:00:04 -0700

debhelper (2.0.15) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_clean: only force-remove debian/tmp if in v2 mode. In v1 mode, we
    shouldn't remove it because we may only be acting on a single package.
    (Closes: #41689)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 20 Jul 1999 19:00:15 -0700

debhelper (2.0.14) unstable; urgency=low

  * Moved /usr/lib/debhelper to /usr/share/debhelper for FHS compliance
    (#41174). If you used Dh_lib or something in another package, be sure to
    update your "use" line and declare an appropriate dependancy. (Closes:
    #41174)
  * dh_installxaw: Patch from Josip Rodin <joy@cibalia.gkvk.hr> to fix
    multiple-stanza xaw file support. (Closes: #41173)

debhelper (2.0.12) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installinfo: fixed #SECTION# substitution.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed,  7 Jul 1999 17:51:59 -0700

debhelper (2.0.11) unstable; urgency=low

  * At long, long last, dh_installinfo is written. It takes a simple list of
    info files and figures out the rest for you. (Closes: #15717)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed,  7 Jul 1999 17:04:48 -0700

debhelper (2.0.10) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_compress: compress changelog.html files. (Closes: #40626)
  * dh_installchangelogs: installs a link from changelog.html.gz to changelog.gz, 
    because I think it's important that upstream changelogs always be accessable
    at that name.
  * dh_compress: removed the usr/share/X11R6/man bit. Note part of FHS.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed,  7 Jul 1999 10:46:03 -0700

debhelper (2.0.09) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_compress: added some FHS support. Though debhelper doesn't put stuff
    there (and won't until people come up with a general transition strategy or
    decide to not have a clean transiotion), dh_compress now compresses
    various files in /usr/share/{man,doc,info}. (Closes: #40892)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed,  7 Jul 1999 09:55:03 -0700

debhelper (2.0.08) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_*: redirect cd output to /den/null, because CD can actually output
    things if CDPATH is set.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue,  6 Jul 1999 10:14:00 -0700

debhelper (2.0.07) unstable; urgency=low

  * Added dh_perl calls to example rules files.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sun,  4 Jul 1999 15:57:51 -0700

debhelper (2.0.06) unstable; urgency=low

  * Now depends on perl5 | perl, I'll kill the | perl bit later on, but it
    seems to make sense for the transition.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sun,  4 Jul 1999 10:56:03 -0700

debhelper (2.0.05) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_clean: clean debian/tmp even if v2 is being used. If you're
    using dh_movefiles, stuff may well be left in there, and it needs to be
    cleaned up.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sat,  3 Jul 1999 13:23:46 -0700

debhelper (2.0.04) unstable; urgency=low

  * Patch from Raphael Hertzog <rhertzog@hrnet.fr> to make dh_perl support a
    -d flag that makes it add a dependancy on the sppropriate perl-XXX-base
    package. Few packages will really need this. (Closes: #40631)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri,  2 Jul 1999 11:22:00 -0700

debhelper (2.0.03) unstable; urgency=low

  * Depend on file >= 2.23-1, because dh_perl uses file -b, introduced at
    that version. (Closes: #40589)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  1 Jul 1999 14:41:12 -0700

debhelper (2.0.02) unstable; urgency=low

  * If you're going to use v2, it's reccommended you call 
    "dh_testversion 2". Added a note about that to doc/v2.
  * Dh_Lib.pm compat: if a version that is greater than the highest
    supported compatability level is specified, abort with an error. Perhaps
    there will be a debhelper v3 some day...

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  1 Jul 1999 14:08:14 -0700

debhelper (2.0.01) unstable; urgency=low

  * Actually include doc/v2 this time round.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  1 Jul 1999 14:01:55 -0700

debhelper (2.0.00) unstable; urgency=low

  * Don't let the version number fool you. Debhelper v2 is here, but just
    barely. That's what all the zero's mean. :-)
  * If DH_COMPAT=2, then debian/<package> will be used for the temporary
    build directory for all packages. debian/tmp is no more! (Well, except
    dh_movefiles still uses it.)
  * debhelper.1: documented this. 
  * Dh_lib.pm: added compat(), pass in a number, it returns true if the
    current compatability level is equal to that number.
  * doc/PROGRAMMING: documented that.
  * debhelper itself now builds using DH_COMPAT=2.
  * dh_debstd forces DH_COMPAT=1, because it needs to stay compatable with
    debstd after all.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  1 Jul 1999 13:37:58 -0700

debhelper (1.9.00) unstable; urgency=low

  * This is a release of debhelper in preparation for debhelper v2.
  * doc/v2: added, documented status of v2 changes.
  * README: mention doc/v2
  * debhelper.1: docuimented DH_COMPAT
  * examples/*: added DH_COMAPT=1 to top of rules files

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  1 Jul 1999 13:16:41 -0700

debhelper (1.2.83) unstable; urgency=medium

  * dh_perl: fixed substvars typo. Urgency medium since a lot of people will
    be using this script RSN.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  1 Jul 1999 11:44:05 -0700

debhelper (1.2.82) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installinit: applied patch from Yann Dirson <ydirson@multimania.com>
    to make it look for init.d scripts matching the --init-script parameter.
    This is only useful if, like Yann, you have packages that need to install
    more than 1 init script.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 25 Jun 1999 11:38:05 -0700

debhelper (1.2.81) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_link: fixed bug #40159 and added a regression test for it. It was
    failing if it was given absolute filenames.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 25 Jun 1999 10:12:44 -0700

debhelper (1.2.80) unstable; urgency=low

  * Changed perl version detection.
  * Changed call to find.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu, 24 Jun 1999 16:48:53 -0700

debhelper (1.2.79) unstable; urgency=low

  * Added dh_perl by Raphael Hertzog <rhertzog@hrnet.fr>. dh_perl handles
    finding dependancies of perl scripts, plus deleting those annoying
    .packlist files.
  * I don't think dh_perl is going to be useful until the new version of
    perl comes out.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu, 24 Jun 1999 14:47:55 -0700

debhelper (1.2.78) unstable; urgency=low

  * Really include dh_installpam.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 15 Jun 1999 09:00:36 -0700

debhelper (1.2.77) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installpam: new program by Sean <shaleh@foo.livenet.net>
  * Wrote man page for same.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 11 Jun 1999 13:08:04 -0700

debhelper (1.2.76) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_fixperms: Do not use chmod/chown -R at all anymore, instead it uses
    the (slower) find then chown method. Necessary because the -R methods will
    happyily attempt to chown a dangling symlink, which makes them fail.
    (Closes: #38911)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon,  7 Jun 1999 20:20:01 -0700

debhelper (1.2.75) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installemacsen: fixed perms of install, remove scripts.
    (closes: #39082)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon,  7 Jun 1999 14:42:12 -0700

debhelper (1.2.74) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installmanpages: recognizes gzipped man pages and installs them.
    This is an experimental change, one problem is if your man page isn't
    already gzip-9'd, it will be in violation of policy. (closes: #38673)
  * The previous fix to dh_installemacsen was actually quite necessary - the
    x bit was being set!

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  3 Jun 1999 15:14:27 -0700

debhelper (1.2.73) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installemacsen: make sure files are installed mode 0644. Not strictly
    necessary since dh_fixperms fixes them if you have a wacky umask, but oh
    well. (Closes: 38900)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  3 Jun 1999 14:50:42 -0700

debhelper (1.2.72) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installemacsen: use debian/package.emacsen-startup, not
    debian/package.emacsen-init. The former has always been documented to
    work on the man page (closes: #38898).

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  3 Jun 1999 14:16:57 -0700

debhelper (1.2.71) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fixed a typo (closes: #38881)

debhelper (1.2.70) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installmanpages: Properly quoted metacharacters in $dir in regexp.

debhelper (1.2.69) unstable; urgency=low

  * Don't include Test.pm in the binary package.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sun, 23 May 1999 19:29:27 -0700

debhelper (1.2.68) unstable; urgency=low

  * doc/README: updated example of using #DEBHELPER# in a perl script, with
    help from Julian Gilbey.
  * dh_link: generate absolute symlinks where appropriate. The links
    generated before were wrong simetimes (#37774)
  * Started writing a regression test suite for debhelper. Currently covers
    only the above bugfix and a few more dh_link tests.
  * Tossed Test.pm into the package (for regression tests) until we get perl
    5.005 which contains that package. That file is licenced the same as perl.
  * dh_installchangelogs: force all installed files to be owned by root
    (#37655).

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sun, 16 May 1999 17:18:44 -0700

debhelper (1.2.67) unstable; urgency=low

debhelper (1.2.63) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installxaw: updated to work with xaw-wrappers 0.90 and above. It
    actually has to partially parse the xaw-wrappers config files now. 

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sun,  2 May 1999 19:13:34 -0700

debhelper (1.2.62) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installemacsen: added support for site-start files. Added --flavor
    and --number to control details of installation. (#36832)

debhelper (1.2.61) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_md5sums.1: dh_md5sums is not deprecated, AFAIK, but the manpage has
    somehow been modified to say it was at version 1.2.45.

debhelper (1.2.60) unstable; urgency=low

debhelper (1.2.59) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_builddeb: added --destdir option, which lets you tell it where

debhelper (1.2.56) unstable; urgency=low

    exists. This is useful if you have conffiles that have permissions and
    may be deleted. (#35845)

debhelper (1.2.55) unstable; urgency=low

debhelper (1.2.54) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installinit.1: man page fixups (#34160).
  * *.1: the date of each man page is now automatically updated when 
    debhelper is built to be the last modification time of the man page.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  8 Apr 1999 20:28:00 -0700

debhelper (1.2.53) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_compress: leave .taz and .tgz files alone. Previously trying to
    compress such files caused gzip to fail and the whole command to fail.
    Probably fixes #35677. Actually, it now skips files with a whole
    range of odd suffixes that gzip refuses to compress, including "_z" and
    "-gz".
  * dh_compress.1: updated docs to reflect this, and to give the new
    suggested starting point if you want to write your own debian/compress
    file.

debhelper (1.2.49) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_fixperms: if called with -X, was attempting to change permissions of
    even symlinks. This could have even caused it to follow the symlinks and
    modify files on the build system in some cases. Ignores them now. (#35102)

debhelper (1.2.44) unstable; urgency=medium

  * dh_fixperms: has been mostly broken when used with -X, corrected this.

debhelper (1.2.43) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_compress.1: man page fixes (Closes: #33858).
  * dh_compress: now it can handle compressing arbitrary numbers of files,
    spawning gzip multiple times like xargs does, if necessary.
    (Closes: #33860)
  * Dh_Lib.pm: added xargs() command.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue,  9 Mar 1999 14:57:09 -0800

debhelper (1.2.42) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_m5sums: don't generate bogus md5sums file if the package contains no
    files. Yes, someone found a legitimate reason to do that.

debhelper (1.2.40) unstable; urgency=low

  * Let's just say 1.2.39 is not a good version of debhelper to use and
    leave it at that. :-)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sat, 20 Feb 1999 22:55:27 -0800

debhelper (1.2.39) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installcron: install files in cron.d with correct perms.

debhelper (1.2.38) unstable; urgency=low

debhelper (1.2.37) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installdocs: Patch from Jim Pick <jim@jimpick.com>, fixes regexp error (Closes: #33431).
  * dh_installxaw: new program by Daniel Martin 
    <Daniel.Martin@jhu.edu>, handles xaw-wrappers integration.
  * dh_installxaw.1: wrote man page.

debhelper (1.2.36) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_compress.1: Fixed typo in man page. (Closes: #33364)
  * autoscripts/postinst-menu-method: fixed typo. (Closes: #33376)

debhelper (1.2.35) unstable; urgency=low

  * Dh_Lib.pm filearray(): Deal with multiple spaces and spaces at the 
    beginning of lines in files. (closes: #33161)

debhelper (1.2.34) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_clean: added -d flag (also --dirs-only) that will make it clean only
    tmp dirs. (closes: #30807)
  * dh_installdocs: to support packages that need multiple doc-base files,
    will now look for debian/<package>.doc-base.<doc-id>.
  * dh_compress: removed warning message (harmless).

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sat,  6 Feb 1999 17:48:33 -0800

debhelper (1.2.33) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_compress: verbose_print() cd's.
  * dh_compress: clear the hash of hard links when we loop - was making
    dh_compress fail on multi-binary packages that had harlinks. Thanks to
    Craig Small for spotting this.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  4 Feb 1999 20:19:37 -0800

debhelper (1.2.32) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_suidmanager: if it cannot determine the user name or group name from
    the uid or gid, it will pass the uid or gid to suidmanager. This should
    probably never happen, but it's good to be safe.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  4 Feb 1999 16:00:35 -0800

debhelper (1.2.31) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installinit.1: minor typo fix (closes: #32753)

debhelper (1.2.30) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_fixperms: cut down the number of chmod commands that are executed
    from 3 to 1, no change in functionality.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon,  1 Feb 1999 17:05:29 -0800

debhelper (1.2.29) unstable; urgency=high

  * Do not include bogus chsh, chfn, passwd links in debhelper binary!
    These were acidentially left in after dh_link testing I did as I was
    working on the last version of debhelper.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 25 Jan 1999 20:26:46 -0800

debhelper (1.2.28) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_link: fixed bug that prevent multiple links to the same source from
    being made. (#23255)

debhelper (1.2.27) unstable; urgency=low

  * autoscripts/*menu*: "test", not "text"!

debhelper (1.2.26) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installdocs: use prerm-doc-base script fragement. Was using
    postrm-doc-base, for some weird reason.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 18 Jan 1999 13:36:40 -0800

debhelper (1.2.25) unstable; urgency=low

  * autoscripts/*menu*: It turns out that "command" is like test -w, it will
    still return true if update-menus is not executable. This can
    legitimatly happen if you are upgrading the menu package, and it makes
    postinsts that use command fail. Reverted to using test -x. Packages
    built with debhelper >= 1.2.21 that use menus should be rebuilt.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sat, 16 Jan 1999 13:47:16 -0800

debhelper (1.2.24) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_fixperms: linux 2.1.x and 2.2.x differ from earlier versions in that
    they do not clear the suid bit on a file when the owner of that file
    changes. It seems that fakeroot behaves the same as linux 2.1 here. I
    was relying on the old behavior to get rid of suid and sgid bits on files.
    Since this no longer happens implicitly, I've changed to clearing the
    bits explicitly.
  * There's also a small behavior change involved here. Before, dh_fixperms
    did not clear suid permissions on files that were already owned by root.
    Now it does.
  * dh_fixperms.1: cleaned up the docs to mention that those bits are
    cleared.

debhelper (1.2.22) unstable; urgency=low

  * Reversed change in last version; don't clobber mode (#31628).

debhelper (1.2.21) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installdocs: Added doc-base support, if debian/<package>.doc-base
    exists, it will be installed as a doc-base control file. If you use this,
    you probably want to add "dh_testversion 1.2.21" to the rules file to make
    sure your package is built with a new enough debhelper.
  * dh_installdocs: now supports -n to make it not modify postinst/prerm.
  * dh_suidregister: turned off leading 0/1 in permissions settings, until
    suidregister actually supports it.
  * autoscripts/*: instead of "text -x", use "command -v" to see if various
    binaries exist. This gets rid of lots of hard-coded paths.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed, 30 Dec 1998 22:50:04 -0500

debhelper (1.2.20) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_compress: handle the hard link stuff properly, it was broken. Also
    faster now.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed, 23 Dec 1998 19:53:03 -0500

debhelper (1.2.19) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_listpackages: new command. Takes the standard options taken by other
    debhelper commands, and just outputs a list of the binary packages a
    debhelper command would act on. Added because of bug #30626, and because
    of wn's truely ugly use of debhelper internals to get the same info (and
    because it's just 4 lines of code ;-).
  * dh_compress: is now smart about compressing files that are hardlinks.
    When possible, will only compress one file, delete the hardlinks, and
    re-make hardlinks to the compressed file, saving some disk space.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 18 Dec 1998 22:26:41 -0500

debhelper (1.2.18) unstable; urgency=medium

  * dh_fixperms: was not fixing permissions of files in usr/doc/ to 644,
    this has been broken since version 1.2.3.

debhelper (1.2.17) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_makeshlibs: relaxed regexp to find library name and number a little so
    it will work on libraries with a major but no minor version in their
    filename (examples of such: libtcl8.0.so.1, libBLT-unoff.so.1)
  * dh_movefiles: added --sourcedir option to make it move files out of 
    some directory besides debian/tmp (#30221)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri,  4 Dec 1998 13:56:57 -0800

debhelper (1.2.16) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installchangelogs: now detects html changelogs and installs them as
    changelog.html.gz, to comply with latest policy (which I disagree with
    BTW).
  * manpages: updated policy version numbers.
  * dh_installdocs: behavior change: all docs are now installed mode 644.
    I have looked and it doesn't seem this will actually affect any packages
    in debian. This is useful only if you want to use dh_installdocs and not
    dh_fixperms, and that's the only time this behavior change will have any
    effect, either. (#30118)

debhelper (1.2.14) unstable; urgency=low

  * Really fixed #29762 this time. This also fixes #30025, which asked that
    dh_makeshlibs come before dh_shlibdeps, so the files it generates can
    also be used as a shlibs.local file, which will be used by dh_shlibdeps.

debhelper (1.2.12) unstable; urgency=low

  * examples/*: moved dh_makeshlibs call to before dh_installdeb call.
    (#29762). This is just so if you replace dh_makeshlibs with something
    that generates debian/shlibs, it still gets installed properly.
  * dh_suidregister: use names instead of uid's and gid's, at request of
    suidregister maintainer (#29802).

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sat, 21 Nov 1998 13:13:10 -0800

debhelper (1.2.11) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_movefiles: if given absolute filenames to move (note that that is
    *wrong*), it will move relative files anyway. Related to bug #29761.
  * dh_link: made relative links work right. (I hope!)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 20 Nov 1998 20:21:51 -0800

debhelper (1.2.10) unstable; urgency=low

  * examples/*: added dh_link calls to example rules files.

debhelper (1.2.9) unstable; urgency=low

debhelper (1.2.8) unstable; urgency=low

debhelper (1.2.5) unstable; urgency=low

  * The perl conversion is complete.
  .
  * dh_compress: perlized (yay, perl has readlink, no more ls -l | awk 
    garbage!)
  * dh_lib, dh_getopt.pl: deleted, nothing uses them anymore.
  * debian/rules: don't install above 2 files.
  * doc/PROGRAMMING: removed all documentation of the old shell library
    interface.

debhelper (1.2.4) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_debstd, dh_movefiles: perlized.
  * dh_debstd: fixed -c option.
  * dh_installinit: fixed minor perl -w warning.
  * Only 1 shell script remains! (But it's a doozy..)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 13 Nov 1998 13:29:39 -0800

debhelper (1.2.3) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_fixperms, dh_installdebfiles, dh_installdeb: perlized
  * dh_suidregister: perlized, with help from Che_Fox (and Tom Christianson,
    indirectly..).
  * dh_suidregister: include leading 0 (or 1 for sticky, etc) in file
    permissions.
  * Only 3 more to go and it'll be 100% perl.
  * Made $dh{EXCLUDE_FIND} available to perl scripts.

debhelper (1.2.2) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_du, dh_shlibdeps, dh_undocumented: rewrite in perl.
  * dh_undocumented: shortened the symlink used for section 7 undocumented
    man pages, since it can link to undocuemented.7.gz in the same directory.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 10 Nov 1998 13:40:22 -0800

debhelper (1.2.1) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_strip, dh_installinit: rewrite in perl.

debhelper (1.2.0) unstable; urgency=low

  * A new unstable dist means I'm back to converting more of debhelper to
    perl.. Since 1.1 has actually stabalized, I've upped this to 1.2.
  * dh_md5sums: rewritten in perl, for large speed gain under some
    circumstances (old version called perl sometimes, once per package.)
  * dh_installmenu, dh_installwmacsen, dh_installwm: perlized.
  * Dh_Lib.pm: made autoscript() really work.

debhelper (1.1.24) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_suidregister: remove suid/sgid bits from all files registered. The
    reason is this: if you're using suidmanager, and you want a file that
    ships suid to never be suid on your system, shipping it suid in the .deb
    will create a window where it is suid before suidmanager fixes it's
    permissions. This change should be transparent to users and developers.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 27 Oct 1998 18:19:48 -0800

debhelper (1.1.23) unstable; urgency=low

debhelper (1.1.22) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_fixperms: quoting fix from Roderick Schertler <roderick@argon.org>
  * Added support for register-window-manager command which will be in a new
    (as yet unreleased) xbase. Now a new dh_installwm program handles
    registration of a window manager and the necessary modifications to
    postinst and postrm. It's safe to go ahead and start using this for your
    window manager packages, just note that it won't do anything until the new
    xbase is out, and that due to the design of register-window-manager, if
    your wm is installed before a xbase that supports register-window-manager
    is installed, the window manager will never be registered. (#20971)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed, 14 Oct 1998 23:08:04 -0700

debhelper (1.1.21) unstable; urgency=low

debhelper (1.1.20) unstable; urgency=low

  * Added a --same-arch flag, that is useful in the rare case when you have
    a package that builds only for 1 architecture, as part of a multi-part,
    multi-architecture source package. (Ie, netscape-dmotif).
  * Modified dh_installinit -r so it does start the daemon on the initial
    install (#26680).

debhelper (1.1.19) unstable; urgency=low

debhelper (1.1.17) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_strip: on Richard Braakman's advice, strip the .comment and .note
    sections of shared libraries.
  * Added DH_OPTIONS environment variable - anything in it will be treated
    as additional command line arguments by all debhelper commands. This in
    useful in some situations, for example, if you need to pass -p to all
    debhelper commands that will be run. If you use DH_OPTIONS, be sure to
    use dh_testversion 1.1.17 - older debhelpers will ignore it and do
    things you don't want them to.
  * Made -N properly exclude packages when no -i, -a, or -p flags are
    present. It didn't before, which was a bug.

debhelper (1.1.15) unstable; urgency=medium

  * dh_installmanpages: the new perl version had a nasty habit of 
    installing .so.x library files as man pages. Fixed.
  * dh_installmanpages: the code to exclude searching for man pages in
    debian/tmp directories was broken. Fixed.

debhelper (1.1.14) unstable; urgency=low

  * Debhelper now has a web page at http://kitenet.net/programs/debhelper/

  * Added code to debian/rules to update the web page when I release new
    debhelpers.
  * dh_compress: since version 0.88 or so, dh_compress has bombed out if
    a debian/compress file returned an error code. This was actually
    unintentional - in fact, the debian/compress example in the man page
    will fail this way if usr/info or usr/X11R6 is not present. Corrected
    the program to not fail. (#26214)

debhelper (1.1.13) unstable; urgency=low

    symlink problem after .so conversion), and is about twice as fast.

debhelper (1.1.12) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installdocs: forgot to pass package name to isnative(). Any native
    debian package that had a debian/TODO would have it installed with the
    wrong name, and debhelper would warn of undefined values for some
    packages. Fixed.

debhelper (1.1.10) unstable; urgency=low

  * It's come to my attention that a few packages use filename globbing in
    debian/{docs,examples,whatever} files and expect that to work. It used
    to work before the perl conversion, but it was never _documented_, or
    intented to work. If you use this in your packages, they are broken and
    need fixing (and will refuse to build with current versions of debhelper).
    I apologize for the inconvenience.

  * dh_clean: fixed a bug, intorduced in version 1.1.8, where it didn't
    remove debian/files properly.
  * dh_shlibdeps, dh_testdir, dh_testroot, dh_testversion: converted to perl.
  * Encode the version of debhelper in a sepererate file, so dh_testversion
    doesn't have to be generated when a new version of debhelper is built.
  * Removed bogus menu file.

  * Dh_Lib.pm: fixed bug in the escaping code, numbers don't need to be
    escaped. Also, no longer escape "-".
  * dh_clean, dh_gencontrol, dh_installcron: converted to perl.
  * dh_gencontrol.1, dh_gencontrol: the man page had said that
    --update-rcd-params was equivilant to -u for this program. You should
    really use --dpkg-gencontrol-params.

debhelper (1.1.6) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_movefiles: don't die on symlinks (#25642). (Hope I got the fix right
    this time..)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 11 Aug 1998 20:11:13 -0700

debhelper (1.1.5) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_builddeb, dh_installchangelogs: converted to perl.
  * dh_installdirs: converted to perl, getting rid of nasty chdir en-route.
  * dh_installdirs: now you can use absolute directory names too if you
    prefer.
  * doc/PROGRAMMING: updated to cover new perl modules.
  * Dh_Lib.pm: doit(): when printing out commands that have run, escape
    metacharacters in the output. I probably don't escape out all the
    characters I should, but this is just a convenience to the user anyway.
  * dh_installdebfiles: it's been broken forever, I fixed it. Obviously
    nobody uses it anymore, which is good, since it's deprected :-)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 11 Aug 1998 15:23:34 -0700

debhelper (1.1.4) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_movefiles: fixed bug introduced in 1.1.1 where it would fail in some
    cases if you tried to move a broken symlink.
  * dh_installdocs: was only operating on the first package.
  * dh_installexamples: rewritten in perl.
  * Dh_Lib.pm: all multiple package operations were broken.
  * Dh_Lib.pm: implemented complex_doit() and autoscript().
  * Made all perl code work with use strict and -w (well, except
    dh_getopt.pl, but that's a hack that'll go away one day).
  * I didn't realize, but rewriting dh_installdocs in perl fixed bug #24686
    (blank lines in debian/docs file problem), although this same problem 
    applies to other debhelper programs... like dh_installexamples, which had
    the same bug fixed when I rewrote it in perl just now.
  * Dh_Lib.pm: accidentially didn't check DH_VERBOSE if commands were not
    passed any switches.
  * Dh_Getopt.pm: --noscripts was broken.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 11 Aug 1998 12:44:04 -0700

debhelper (1.1.3) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_md5sums: -x was broken since version 1.1.1 - fixed.
  * dh_lib: removed get_arch_indep_packages() function that hasn't been used
    at all for a long while.
  * Added Dh_Lib.pm, a translation of dh_lib into perl.
  * dh_getopt.pl: moved most of it into new Dh_Getopt.pm module, rewriting
    large chunks in the process.
  * dh_installdocs: completly rewritten in perl. Now it's faster and it can
    install many oddly named files it died on before.
  * dh_installdocs: fixed a bug that installed TODO files mode 655 in native
    debian packages.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 10 Aug 1998 15:01:15 -0700

debhelper (1.1.2) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_strip: added -X to specify files to not strip (#25590).
  * Added dh_installemacsen, for automatic registration with emacsen-common

  * Preliminary thoughts in TODO about converting entire debhelper programs
    to perl programs.

debhelper (1.1.1) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_movefiles: try to move all files specified, and only then bomb out if
    some of the file could not be found. Makes it easier for some packages
    that don't always have the same files in them.
  * dh_compress: any parameters passed to it on the command line specify
    additional files to be compressed in the first package acted on.
  * dh_compress: recognize standard -A parameter.

debhelper (1.1.0) unstable; urgency=low

  * New unstable branch of debhelper.
  
  * TODO: list all current bugs, in order I plan to tackle them.
  * Added debhelper.1 man page, which groups all the debhelper options that
    are common to all commands in once place so I can add new options w/o
    updating 27 man pages.
  * dh_*.1: updated all debheper man pages to refer to debhelper(1) where
    appropriate. Also corrected a host of little errors.
  * doc/README: moved a lot of this file into debhelper.1.
  * dh_*: -N option now excludes a package from the list of packages the 
    programs act on. (#25247)

debhelper (1.0) stable unstable; urgency=low

  * 1.0 at last!
  
  * This relelase is not really intended for stable. I throw a copy into
    stable-updates because I want it to be available as an upgrade for
    people using debian 2.0 (the current version in debian 2.0 has no
    critical bugs, but this version is of course a lot nicer), and I plan
    to start work on a new branch of debhelper that will fix many wishlist
    bug reports, and of course introduce many new bugs, and which will go
    into unstable only.

debhelper (0.98) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_lib: isnative: pass -l<changelog> to dpkg-parsechangelog, to support
    odd packages with multiple different debian changelogs.

  * examples/*: install-stamp no longer depends on phony build targey; now 
    install-stamp depends on build-stamp instead (#24234).
  * dh_fixperms: applied patch from Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
    to fix bad uses of the find command, so it should now work on packages 
    with files with spaces in them (#22005). It's also much cleaner. Thanks,
    Herbert!
  * dh_getopt.pl, doc/PROGRAMMING: added DH_EXCLUDE_FIND, to make the above
    fix work.

debhelper (0.94) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_md5sums: fixed so it handles spaces and other odd characters in 
    filenames correctly. (#23046, #23700, #22010)
  * As a side effect, got rid of the nasty temporary file dh_md5sums used
    before.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 22 Jun 1998 16:14:42 -0700

debhelper (0.93) unstable; urgency=low

  * Depend on file, since several dh_*'s use it.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 19 Jun 1998 21:43:51 -0700

debhelper (0.92) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_gencontrol: pass -isp to dpkg-gencontrol to make it include section
    and priority info in the .deb file. Back in Jan 1998, this came up, and
    a consensus was reached on debian-devel that it was a good thing for
    -isp to be used.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 19 Jun 1998 16:15:24 -0700

debhelper (0.91) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installdocs: support debian/<package>.{README.Debian,TODO}

debhelper (0.90) unstable; urgency=low

  * I'd like to thank Len Pikulski and Igor Grobman at nothinbut.net for
    providing me with free internet access on a moment's notice, so I could
    get this package to you after hacking on it all over New England for the
    past week. Thanks, guys!
  .
  * Added dh_debstd, which mimics the functionality of the debstd command.
    It's not a complete nor an exact copy, and it's not so much intended to
    be used in a debian/rules file, as it is to be run by hand when you are
    converting a package from debstd to debhelper. "dh_debstd -v" will
    output the sequence of debhelper commands that approximate what debstd
    would do in the same situation.
  * dh_debstd is completly untested, I don't have the source to any packages
    that use debstd available. Once this is tested, I plan to release 
    debhelper 1.0!
  * Added a from-debstd document that gives a recipe to convert from debstd
    to debhelper.
  * dh_fixperms: can now use -X to exclude files from having their
    permissions changed.
  * dh_testroot: test for uid == 0, instead of username == root, becuase
    some people enjoy changing root's name.
  * dh_installinit: handle debian/init.d as well as debian/init files, 
    for backwards compatability with debstd. Unlike with debstd, the two
    files are treated identically.
  * dh_lib, PROGRAMMING: added "warning" function.
  * Minor man page fixes.
  * dh_compress: don't bomb out if usr/doc/<package> is empty. (#23054)
  * dh_compress, dh_installdirs: always cd into $TMP and back out, even if
    --no-act is on. (#23054)

debhelper (0.88) unstable; urgency=low

  * I had many hours on a train to hack on debhelper... enjoy!
  * dh_compress: always pass -f to gzip, to force compression.
  * dh_compress: added -X switch, to make it easy to specify files to
    exclude, without all the bother of a debian/compress script. You can
    use -X multiple times, too.
  * PROGRAMMING, dh_getopt.pl: DH_EXCLUDE is now a variable set by the
    --exclude (-X) switch. -x now sets DH_INCLUDE_CONFFILES.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sun, 17 May 1998 11:26:09 -0700

debhelper (0.87) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_strip: strip .comment and .note, not comment and note, when stripping
    elf binaries. This makes for smaller output files. This has always been
    broken in debhelper before! (#22395)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed, 13 May 1998 11:54:29 -0700

debhelper (0.86) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_compress: don't try to re-compress *.gz files. Eliminates warning
    messages in some cases, shouldn't actually change the result at all.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 27 Apr 1998 15:21:33 -0700

debhelper (0.85) unstable; urgency=low

  * Moved a few things around that were broken by Che's patch:
    - dh_installdirs should go in install target.
    - dh_clean should not run in binary targets.
  * This is just a quick fix to make it work, I'm not happy with it. I'm
    going to discuss my problems with it with Che, and either make a new
    version fixing them, or revert to 0.83.
  * So be warned that the example rules files are not currently in good
    shape if you're starting a new package.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sat, 18 Apr 1998 23:30:38 -0700

debhelper (0.84) unstable; urgency=low

  * Applied Che_Fox'x patches to example rules files, which makes them use
    an install target internally to move things into place in debian/tmp.

debhelper (0.83) unstable; urgency=low

  * Generate symlinks in build stage of debian/rules. cvs cannot create them
    properly. Note that version 0.80 and 0.81 could not build some packages
    because of missing symlinks.

debhelper (0.80) unstable; urgency=low

  * Moved under cvs (so I can fork a stable and an unstable version).
  * dh_movefiles: first move real files, then move symlinks. (#18220)
    Thanks to Bdale Garbee <bdale@gag.com> and Adam Heath 
    <adam.heath@usa.net> for help on the implementation.
  * dh_installchangelogs: use debian/package.changelog files if they exist
    rather than debian/changelog. It appears some people do need per-package
    changelogs.
  * dh_gencontrol: if debian/package.changelogs files exist, use them.
  * Above 2 changes close #20442.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 30 Mar 1998 20:54:26 -0800

debhelper (0.78) frozen unstable; urgency=low

  * More spelling fixes from Christian T. Steigies. (I ignored the spelling
    fixes to the changelog, though - too many, and a changelog isn't meant
    to be changed after the fact :-)
  * dh_fixperms: remove execute bits from .la files genrated by libtool.

    installs symlink man pages from the source package (#19831).
  * dh_installmanpages: minor speedups

    Life is too short for me to spell check my technical documentation, but
    I always welcome corrections!

debhelper (0.71) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_makeshlibs: -V flag was broken: if just -V was specified,
    dh_makeshlibs would die. Corrected this.
  * dh_lib: removed warning if the arguments passed to a debhelper command
    do not apply to the main package. It's been long enough so I'm 100% sure
    no packages use the old behavior.

debhelper (0.70) unstable; urgency=low

debhelper (0.59) unstable; urgency=low

    policy. (#16644)
  * dh_makeshlibs: introduced a -V flag, which allows you to specify explicit
    version requirements in the shlibs file.
  * dh_{installdirs,installdocs,installexamples,suidregister,undocumented}:
    Added a -A flag, which makes any files/directories specified on the
    command line apply to ALL packages acted on.
  * Updated Standards-Version to latest.

debhelper (0.50) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_makeshlibs: added -m parameter, which can force the major number
    of the shared library if it is guessed incorrectly.
  * Added dh_testversion to let your package depend on a certian version of
    debhelper to build.
  * dh_{installdirs,installdocs,installexamples,suidregieter,undocumented}:
    behavior modification - any files/directories specified on the command
    line now apply to the first package acted on. This may not be the
    first package listed in debian/control, if you use -p to make it act on
    a given package, or -i or -a.
  * If you take advantage of the above new behavior, I suggest you add
    "dh_testversion 0.50" to your debian/rules.
  * Display a warning message in cases where the above behavior is triggered,
    and debhelper's behavior has altered.
  * I have grepped debian's source packages, and I'm quite sure this
    is not going to affect any packages currently in debian.
  * dh_lib: isnative() now caches its return value, which should optimize
    away several more calls to dpkg-parsechangelog.
  * README: explain a way to embed debhelper generated shell script into a
    perl script.
  * dh_installinit: A hack to work around the problem in getopt(1) that
    led to bug report #16229: Any text specified on the command line that is
    not a flag will be presumed to be part of the -u flag. Yuck.

debhelper (0.37) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_du: Fixed hardcoded debian/tmp.
  * This change got lost by accident, redid it: Optimized out most of the
    slowdown caused by using dpkg-parsechangelog - now it's only called by
    2 dh_* programs.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sun, 28 Dec 1997 20:45:22 -0500

debhelper (0.36) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_undocumented: exit with an error message if the man page specified
    does not have a section.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sat, 27 Dec 1997 14:14:04 -0500

debhelper (0.35) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_lib: use dpkg-parsechangelog instead of parsing it by hand. This
    makes a package build slower (by about 30 seconds, on average), so
    I might remove it or optimize it if too many people yell at me. :-)
  * dh_undocumented.1: note that it really links to undocumented.7.gz.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 22 Dec 1997 22:19:39 -0500

debhelper (0.34) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fixed typo #16215.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 22 Dec 1997 14:41:46 -0500

debhelper (0.33) unstable; urgency=low

  * examples/*: use prefix, instead of PREFIX, becuase autoconf uses that.
    Also, use `pwd`/debian/tmp, instead of debian/tmp.
  * Always substitute #DEBHELPER# in maintainer scripts, even if it expands
    to nothing, for neatness and to save a few bytes. #15863
  * dh_clean: added -k parameter to not delete debian/files. #15789
  * examples/*: use dh_clean -k in the binary targets of all rules files,
    for safety.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu, 11 Dec 1997 19:05:41 -0500

debhelper (0.32) unstable; urgency=low

  * Split dh_installdebfiles into 3 programs (dh_installdeb, dh_shlibdeps,
    and dh_gencontrol). dh_installdebfiles still works, but is depricated.
  * Added an examples/rules.indep file.
  * examples/rules.multi: changed dh_du -a to dh_du -i in binary-indep
    section.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed, 10 Dec 1997 19:53:13 -0500

debhelper (0.31) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fixed man page typos #15685.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sat,  6 Dec 1997 21:44:58 -0500

debhelper (0.30) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_md5sumes, dh_installdirs, dh_compress: fixed assorted cd bugs.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri,  5 Dec 1997 15:08:36 -0500

debhelper (0.29) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_lib: don't expand text passed to doit() a second time. This fixes
    #15624, and hopefully doesn't break anything else.
  * A side effect of this (of interest only to the debhelper programmer) is
    that doit() can no longer handle complex commands now. (ie, pipes, `;',
    `&', etc separating multiple commands, or redirection)
  * dh_makeshlibs, dh_md5sums, dh_installdebfiles, dh_du, dh_clean, 
    dh_installdirs: don't pass complex commands to doit().

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  4 Dec 1997 13:56:14 -0500

debhelper (0.28) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_makeshlibs: fixes type that caused the program to crash (#15536).

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed,  3 Dec 1997 13:22:48 -0500

debhelper (0.27) unstable; urgency=low

  * README: fixed typoes (one serious).
  * Ran ispell on all the documentation.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sun, 30 Nov 1997 18:48:20 -0500

debhelper (0.26) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installdirs: Do not create usr/doc/$PACKAGE directory. Bug #15498
  * README: documented that $PACKAGE can be used in the arguments to some of
    the dh_* programs (#15497).
  * dh_du.1: no, this is not really the dh_md5sums man page (#15499).

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sun, 30 Nov 1997 13:01:40 -0500

debhelper (0.25) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_compress: was not reading debian/compress file - fixed.
  * examples/*: moved dh_clean call to after make clean is run.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 25 Nov 1997 15:43:58 -0500

debhelper (0.24) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_clean: no longer clean up empty (0 byte) files (#15240).

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 25 Nov 1997 14:29:37 -0500

debhelper (0.23) unstable; urgency=low

  * Now depends on fileutils (>= 3.16-4), becuase with any earlier version
    of fileutils, install -p will not work (#14680)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed, 19 Nov 1997 23:59:43 -0500

debhelper (0.22) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installdocs: Install README.debian as README.Debian (of course,
    README.Debian is installed with the same name..)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 18 Nov 1997 01:23:53 -0500

debhelper (0.21) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installinit: on removal, fixed how update-rc.d is called.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sat, 15 Nov 1997 20:43:14 -0500

debhelper (0.20) unstable; urgency=low

  * Added dh_installinit, which installs an init.d script, and edits the
    postinst, postrm, etc.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 14 Nov 1997 00:45:53 -0500

debhelper (0.19) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_installmenu.1: menufile is in section 5, not 1.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Wed, 12 Nov 1997 19:54:48 -0500

debhelper (0.18) unstable; urgency=low

  * examples/*: added source, diff targets that just print an error.
  * dh_clean: clean up more files - *.orig, *.rej, *.bak, .*.orig, .*.rej, 
    .SUMS, TAGS, and empty files.
  * dh_lib: doit(): use eval on parameters, instead of directly running
    them. This lets me clean up several nasty areas where I had to echo the
    commands once, and then run them seperatly.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 10 Nov 1997 19:48:36 -0500

debhelper (0.17) unstable; urgency=low

  * Added dh_installdirs, automatically creates subdirectories (for
    compatability with debstd's debian/dirs file.
  * dh_lib: fixed problem with -P flag.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri,  7 Nov 1997 16:07:11 -0500

debhelper (0.16) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_compress: always compress changelog and upstream changelog, no 
    matter what their size (#14604) (policy 5.8)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  6 Nov 1997 19:50:36 -0500

debhelper (0.15) unstable; urgency=low

  * README: documented what temporary directories are used by default for 
    installing package files into.
  * dh_*: added -P flag, to let a different package build directory be
    specified.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Thu,  6 Nov 1997 15:51:22 -0500

debhelper (0.14) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_fixperms: leave permissions on files in /usr/doc/packages/examples
    unchanged.
  * Install examples/rules* executable.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 27 Oct 1997 12:42:33 -0500

debhelper (0.13) unstable; urgency=low

  * Added dh_makeshlibs, automatically generates a shlibs file.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 24 Oct 1997 20:33:14 -0400

debhelper (0.12) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fixed mispelling of dh_md5sums in examples rules files and README.
    (#13990) Thanks, Adrian.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 24 Oct 1997 14:35:30 -0400

debhelper (0.11) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_md5sums: behavior modification: do not generate md5sums for conffiles.
    (Thanks to Charles Briscoe-Smith <cpb4@ukc.ac.uk>) #14048.
  * dh_md5sums: can generate conffile md5sums with -x parameter.
  * Added a "converting from debstd" section to the README.
  * Added dh_du, generates a DEBIAN/du file with disk usage stats (#14048).

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 21 Oct 1997 13:17:28 -0400

debhelper (0.10) unstable; urgency=medium

  * dh_installdebfiles: fixed *bad* bug that messed up the names of all
    files installed into DEBIAN/ for multiple binary packages.
  * dh_md5sums: fixed another serious bug if dh_md5sums was used for
    multiple binary packages.
  * If you have made any multiple binary packages using debhelper, you
    should rebuild them with this version.
  * dh_md5sums: show cd commands in verbose mode.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 20 Oct 1997 14:44:30 -0400

debhelper (0.9) unstable; urgency=low

  * Added dh_suidregister, interfaces to to the suidmanager package.
  * dh_installdebfiles: fixed typo on man page.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sat, 18 Oct 1997 20:55:39 -0400

debhelper (0.8) unstable; urgency=low

  * Added dh_md5sum, generates a md5sums file.
  * dh_clean: fixed to echo all commands when verbose mode is on.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 17 Oct 1997 14:18:26 -0400

debhelper (0.7) unstable; urgency=low

  * Sped up some things by removing unnecesary for loops.
  * dh_installdocs: behavior modifcation: if there is a debian/TODO, it is
    named like a debian/changelog file: if the package is a debian native
    package, it is installed as TODO. If the package is not a native package,
    it is installed as TODO.Debian.
  * dh_installdocs: handle debian/README.Debian as well as
    debian/README.debian.
  * Added dh_undocumented program, which can set up undocumented.7 symlinks.
  * Moved dh_installdebfiles to come after dh_fixperms in the example rules
    files. (dh_installdebfiles makes sure it installs things with the proper
    permissions, and this reorganization makes the file a bit more flexable
    in a few situations.)

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Mon, 13 Oct 1997 20:08:05 -0400

debhelper (0.6) unstable; urgency=low

  * Got rid of bashisms - this package should work now if /bin/sh is ash.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 10 Oct 1997 15:24:40 -0400

debhelper (0.5) unstable; urgency=low

  * Added dh_installcron to install cron jobs.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 30 Sep 1997 19:37:41 -0400

debhelper (0.4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Added dh_strip to strip binaries and libraries.
  * Fixed several man pages.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Sun, 28 Sep 1997 20:46:32 -0400

debhelper (0.3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Added support for automatic generation of debian install scripts to
    dh_installmenu and dh_installdebfiles and dh_clean.
  * Removed some pointless uses of cat.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Fri, 26 Sep 1997 21:52:53 -0400

debhelper (0.2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Moved out of unstable, it still has rough edges and incomplete bits, but
    is ready for general use.
  * Added man pages for all commands.
  * Multiple binary package support.
  * Support for specifying exactly what set of binary packages to act on,
    by group (arch or noarch), and by package name.
  * dh_clean: allow specification of additional files to remove as
    parameters.
  * dh_compress: fixed it to not compress doc/package/copyright
  * dh_installmanpage: allow listing of man pages that should not be 
    auto-installed as parameters.
  * dh_installdebfiles: make sure all installed files have proper ownerships
    and permissions.
  * dh_installdebfiles: only pass ELF files to dpkg-shlibdeps, and pass .so
    files.
  * Added a README.
  * dh_compress: changed behavior - debian/compress script is now run inside
    the package build directory it is to act on.
  * Added dh_lib symlink in debian/ so the debhelper apps used in this
    package's debian/rules always use the most up-to-date db_lib.
  * Changed dh_cleantmp commands in the examples rules files to dh_clean.

 -- Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>  Tue, 23 Sep 1997 12:26:12 -0400

debhelper (0.1) experimental; urgency=low

  * First release. This is a snapshot of my work so far, and it not yet
    ready to replace debstd.
