 debhelper  - helper programs for debian/rules
Closes: 85963 217552 242834 288250 359614 381851 381854 381940 400571 404785 406707 406921 414537 415717 419060 419612 419849 420158
 debhelper (5.0.49ubuntu1) gutsy; urgency=low
   * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
     - autoscripts/postinst-scrollkeeper: Do not display scrollkeeper output.
     - Add dh_iconcache.
     - dh_installwm: In backward-compatibility code, assume /usr/bin/X11
       rather than /usr/X11R6/bin.
     - dh_installudev: Change default priority string to 50, and change the
       separator character to "-".
     - dh_installxfonts: Set a versioned Depends on xfonts-utils to ensure
       availability of --x11r7-layout.
   * Drop dh_gconf changes as they only affect upgrades from versions of
     Ubuntu before 6.06.
   * Set Ubuntu maintainer address per Debian's request.
 debhelper (5.0.49) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installwm: Fix several stupid bugs, including:
     - man page handling was supposed to be v6 only and was not
     - typo in alternatives call
     - use the basename of the wm to get the man page name
     Closes: #420158
   * dh_installwm: Also make the code to find the man page more robust and
     fall back to not registering a man page if it is not found.
 debhelper (5.0.48) unstable; urgency=low
   * Remove use of #SECTION# from dh_installinfo postinst snippet
     that was accidentially re-added in 5.0.46 due to a corrupt svn checkout.
     Closes: #419849
 debhelper (5.0.47) unstable; urgency=low
   * Fix absurd typo. How did I test for an hour and miss that? Closes: #419612
 debhelper (5.0.46) unstable; urgency=low
   * Fix a typo in postinst-udev.
 debhelper (5.0.45) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installudev: Install udev rules directly into /etc/udev/rules.d/, not
     using the symlinks. MD has agreed that this is more appropriate for most
   * That fixes the longstanding bug that the symlink was only made on brand
     new installs of the package, rather than on upgrade to the first version
     that includes the udev rules file. Closes: #359614
   * This avoids the need to run udevcontrol reload_rules, since inotify
     will see the file has changed. Closes: #414537
   * dh_installudev: Add preinst and postinst code to handle cleanly moving
     the rules file to the new location on upgrade.
   * This would be a good time for the many packages that manage rules files
     w/o using dh_installudev to begin to use it..
   * Do script fragement reversal only in v6, since it can break certian
     third party programs such as dh_installtex. Closes: #419060
 debhelper (5.0.44) unstable; urgency=low
   * dh_installudev: Don't fail if the link already somehow exists on initial
     package install. Closes: #415717
   * prerm and postrm scripts are now generated in a reverse order than
     preinst and postinst scripts. For example, if a package uses
     dh_pysupport before dh_installinit, the prerm will first stop the init
     script and then remove the python files.
   * Introducing beginning of v6 mode.
   * dh_installwm: In v6 mode, install a slave manpage link for
     x-window-manager.1.gz. Done in v6 mode because some window managers
     probably work around this longstanding debhelper bug by registering the
     slave on their own. This bug was only fixable once programs moved out of
     /usr/X11R6. Closes: #85963
   * dh_builddeb: In v6 mode, fix bug in DH_ALWAYS_EXCLUDE handling, to work
     the same as all the other code in debhelper. This could only be fixed in
     v6 mode because packages may potentially legitimately rely on the old
     buggy behavior. Closes: #242834
   * dh_installman: In v6 mode, overwrite existing man pages. Closes: #288250
   * Add dh_installifupdown. Please consider using this if you have
     /etc/network/if-up.d, etc files. Closes: #217552

   [ Valery Perrin ]
   * Correct typo in french translation
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Typo. Closes: #400571
   * dh_fixperms: Change a chmod +x to chmod a+x, to avoid the umask
     influencing it.
   * Looks like Package-Type might get into dpkg. Support it w/o the XB-
   * dh_installudev: Fix postrm to not fail if the udev symlink is missing.
     Closes: #406921, #381940
   * dh_fixperms: Make all files in /usr/include 644, not only .h files.
     Closes: #404785
   * Man page improvements. Closes: #406707
   * dh_installdocs: In v5 mode, now ignore empty files even if they're hidden
     away inside a subdirectory. The code missed this before. See #200905
   * dh_installudev: Support debian/udev files. Closes: #381854
   * dh_installudev: Treat --priority value as a string so that leading zeros
     can be used (also so that a leading "z" that is not "z60" can be
     specified). Closes: #381851
   * Misc minor changes.
