   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
     - autoscripts/postinst-scrollkeeper: Do not display scrollkeeper output.
     - Add dh_iconcache.
     - dh_gconf: Update package versions for Ubuntu.
     - dh_installwm: In backward-compatibility code, assume /usr/bin/X11
       rather than /usr/X11R6/bin.
   [ Scott James Remnant ]
   * Make dh_installudev conform to Ubuntu udev policy by installing files
     directly under /etc/udev/rules.d/ rather than installing them in
     /etc/udev/ and creating symlinks.
 debhelper (5.0.35) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installman: When --language is used, be smarter about stripping
     language codes from man page filenames. Only strip things that look like
     codes that match the specified languages. Closes: #366645
   * dh_installxfonts: /etc/X11/fonts/X11R7 is deprecated, back to looking in
     old location, and not passing --x11r7-layout to update-fonts-alias and
     update-fonts-scale (but still to update-fonts-dir). Closes: #366234
 debhelper (5.0.34) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installcatalogs: Make sure that /etc/sgml exists. Closes: #364946
 debhelper (5.0.33) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Valery Perrin ]
   * Update french translation with recent change in dh_installxfonts
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * dh_installxfonts: Patch from Theppitak Karoonboonyanan to fix
     an instance of /etc/X11/fonts/ that was missed before. Closes: #364530
 debhelper (5.0.32) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installudev: Include rules.d directory so symlink can be made even
     before udev is installed. Closes: #363307
 debhelper (5.0.31) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Valery Perrin ]
   * Update french translation with recents changes in dh_installxfonts,
     dh_link and dh_compress manpages
   * Delete -f option in po4a command line. Bug in po4a has been corrected in
     new version (0.24.1).
   * Change build-depends for po4a. New version (0.24.1).
   * Add code for removing empty "lang" directories into man/ when cleaning.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * dh_installxfonts: pass --x11r7-layout to update-fonts-* commands to ensure
     they use the right new directory. Closes: #362820
   * dh_installxfonts: also, alias files have moved from /etc/X11/fonts/* to
     /etc/X11/fonts/X11R7/*, update call to update-fonts-alias and the man page
     accordingly; packages containing alias files will need to switch to the
     new directory on their own.
   * dh_installudev: correct documentation for --name. Closes: #363028
   * Fix broken directory removal code.
 debhelper (5.0.30) unstable; urgency=low
   * Convert the "I have no packages to build" error into a warning. Am I
     really the first person to run into the case of a source package that
     builds an arch all package and an single-arch package? In this case,
     the binary-arch target needs to use -s and do nothing when run on some
     other arch, and debhelper will now support this.
 debhelper (5.0.29) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installxfonts: Random hack to deal with X font dirs moving to
     /usr/share/fonts/X11/ -- look there for fonts as well as in the old
     location, although the old location probably won't be seen by X anymore.
   * dh_installxfonts: Generate misc:Depends on new xfonts-utils.
   * dh_compress: compress pcm fonts under usr/share/fonts/X11/
   * dh_link: change example that used X11R6 directory.
 debhelper (5.0.28) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_makeshlibs: Fix udeb package name regexp. Closes: #361677
 debhelper (5.0.27) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Typo. Closes: #358904
   * dh_install: swap two paras in man page for clarity. Closes: #359182
   * dh_installman: die with an error if a man page read for so lines fails
     Closes: #359020
   [ Valery Perrin ]
   * Update pot file and french translation with recent changes in
     dh_installdirs and dh_movefiles manpages
 debhelper (5.0.26) unstable; urgency=high
   * dh_installinit: Fix badly generated code in maint scripts that used
      || exit 0   instead of the intended
      || exit $?
     due to a bad shell expansion and caused invoke-rc.d errors to be
     ignored. Closes: #337664
     Note: This has been broken since version 4.2.12 and has affected many
 debhelper (5.0.25) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installdebconf: For udebs, misc:Depends will now contain cdebconf-udeb.
 debhelper (5.0.24) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Add dh_installudev by Marco d'Itri.
   [ vperrin forgot to add this to the changelog when committing ]
   * Update pot file and french translation with recent changes in
      the dh_installdebconf manpage
   * Add -f option to force .pot file re-building. This is in waiting
     a patch, correcting a bug in po4a_0.23.1
   * Add --rm-backups in clean: Otherwise ll.po~ are included in the
     source package. (see debhelper_5.0.22.tar.gz)
 debhelper (5.0.23) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_strip: remove binutils build-dep lines since stable has a new enough
     version. Closes: #350607
   * dh_installdebconf: drop all support for old-style translated debconf
     templates files via debconf-mergetemplate (keep a warning if any are
     found, for now). Allows dropping debhelper's dependency on
     debconf-utils. Closes: #331796
 debhelper (5.0.22) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_makeshlibs: add support for adding udeb: lines to shlibs file
     via --add-udeb parameter. Closes: #345471
   * dh_shlibdeps: pass -tudeb to dpkg-shlibdeps for udebs. Closes: #345472
   * Depends on dpkg-dev 1.13.13 for dh_shlibdeps change.
 debhelper (5.0.21) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installman: correct mistake that broke translated man page installation
     Closes: #349995
 debhelper (5.0.20) unstable; urgency=low
   * Minor bug fix from last release.
 debhelper (5.0.19) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installman: add support for --language option to override man page
     language guessing. Closes: #193221
 debhelper (5.0.18) unstable; urgency=low
   * Improved po4a cleaning. Closes: #348521
   * Reverted change in 4.1.9, so generation of EXCLUDE_FIND escapes "." to
     "\\.", which turns into "\." after being run through the shell, and
     prevents find from treating -X.svn as a regexp that matches files such
     as foo/svn.vim. (It's safe to do this now that all uses of EXCLUDE_FIND are
     via complex_doit(), which was not the case of dh_clean when this change
     was originally made.) Closes: #349070
 debhelper (5.0.17) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_python: Temporarily revert change in 5.0.13 to make use of
     python-support for packages providing private modules or python-only
     modules, since python policy hasn't been updated for this yet.
     Closes: #347758
 debhelper (5.0.16) unstable; urgency=low
   * Fix dangling markup in dh_installinit pod. Closes: #348073
   * Updated French translation from Valery Perrin. Closes: #348074
 debhelper (5.0.15) unstable; urgency=low
   * Fix ghastly option parsing error in last release that broke
     --noscripts (-n was ok). Thanks, Marc Haber. Closes: #347577
 debhelper (5.0.14) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installinit: If run with -o, do the inverse of -n and only
     set up maintainer script snippets, w/o installing any files.
     Useful for those edge cases where the init script is provided by upstream
     and not easily installed by dh_installinit but where it's worth letting
     it manage the maintainer scripts anyway. Closes: #140881, #184980
   * -o might be added for other similar commands later if there is any
     reason to. And yeah, it means that -no is close to a no-op..
 debhelper (5.0.13) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * debhelper svn moved to alioth
   * debhelper(7): document previous dh_install v5 change re wildcarding.
   * dh_link: add special case handling for paths to a directory containing the
     link. Closes: #346405
   * dh_link: add special case handling for link to /
   [ Josselin Mouette ]
   * dh_python: make use of python-support for packages providing private
     modules or python-only modules. This should greatly reduce the
     number of packages needing to transition together with python.
   * postinst-python: don't build the .pyo files, they aren't even used!
   * dh_gconf: add support for debian/package.gconf-defaults, to provide
     defaults for a package without patching the schemas.
 debhelper (5.0.12) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installdocs: document that -X affects doc-base file installation.
     Closes: #345291
 debhelper (5.0.11) unstable; urgency=low
   * French translation update. Closes: #344133
 debhelper (5.0.10) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installdocs: Fix bug introduced by empty file skipping that prevented
     errors for nonexistent files. Closes: #342729
 debhelper (5.0.9) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installmodules: always run depmod, since if module-init-tools but not
     modutils is installed, it will not get run by update-modules.
     Closes: #339658
 debhelper (5.0.8) unstable; urgency=low
   * Man page type fixes (yes, more, nice to know people read the man pages).
     Closes: #341289
   * dh_installdocs: Make -X also exclude matching doc-base files from being
     installed. Closes: #342033
