debhelper 9.20120115ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


debhelper (9.20120115ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian.  Remaining changes:
    - Mark debhelper Multi-Arch: foreign, so it's recognized as satisfying
      cross-dependencies and cross-build-dependencies.
    - dh_installinit: Add --upstart-only and --onlyscripts-upstart modes.
    - Add various autoscripts for above: postinst-upstart,
      postinst-upstart-replace, postinst-upstart-restart, prerm-upstart,
      prerm-upstart-norestart, preinst-removeconffile.
    - autoscripts/postinst-init, autoscripts/postinst-init-restart: Only
      call update-rc.d when there's no upstart job, which will let us get
      rid of the separate postinst-upstart{,-restart} scripts.
    - dh_installudev: Change default init.d symlink priority to 40.
    - dh_installchangelogs: Do not install upstream changelog in compat
      level 7.  This floods packages with huge upstream changelogs which
      take precious CD space.
    - Add dh_apparmor and autoscripts.

debhelper (9.20120115) unstable; urgency=low

  * Finalized v9 mode, which is the new recommended default.
    (But continuing to use v8 is also fine.)
  * It is now deprecated for a package to not specify a compatibility
    level in debian/compat. Debhelper now warns if this is not done,
    and packages without a debian/compat will eventually FTBFS.
  * dh: --without foo,bar now supported.
  * Updated German man page translation. Closes: #653360

debhelper (8.9.14) unstable; urgency=low

  * Typo. Closes: #653006
  * Typo. Closes: #653339

debhelper (8.9.13) unstable; urgency=low

  * Pass CPPFLAGS to qmake. Closes: #646129 Thanks, Felix Geyert
  * dh_strip: Use build-id in /usr/lib/debug in v9.
    Closes: #642158 Thanks, Jakub Wilk
  * Spanish translation update. Closes: #636245 Thanks, Omar Campagne
  * Only enable executable config files in v9. The quality of file permissions
    in debian/ directories turns out to be atrocious; who knew?

debhelper (8.9.12) unstable; urgency=low

  * Debhelper config files may be made executable programs that output the
    desired configuration. No further changes are planned to the config file
    format; those needing powerful syntaxes may now use a programming language
    of their choice. (Be careful aiming that at your feet.)
    Closes: #235302, #372310, #235302, #614731,
    Closes: #438601, #477625, #632860, #642129
  * Added German translation of man pages, done by Chris Leick. Closes: #651221
  * Typo fixes. Closes: #651224 Thanks, Chris Leick

debhelper (8.9.11) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix broken option passing to objcopy. Closes: #649044

debhelper (8.9.10) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_strip: In v9, pass --compress-debug-sections to objcopy.
    Needs a new enough binutils and gdb; debhelper backport
    may need to disable this.
    Thanks, Aurelien Jarno and Bastien ROUCARIES. Closes: #631985
  * dh: Ensure -a and -i are passed when running override_dh_command-arch
    and override_dh_command-indep targets. This is needed when the binary
    target is run, rather than binary-arch/binary-indep. Closes: #648901

debhelper: helper programs for debian/rules

 A collection of programs that can be used in a debian/rules file to
 automate common tasks related to building debian packages. Programs
 are included to install various files into your package, compress
 files, fix file permissions, integrate your package with the debian
 menu system, debconf, doc-base, etc. Most debian packages use debhelper
 as part of their build process.
