dh_installchangelogs - install changelogs into package build directo
dh_installchangelogs [debhelper options] [-k] [upstream]
dh_installchangelogs is a debhelper program that is responsible for
installing changelogs into package build directories.
dh_installchangelogs determines if the package is a debian native pack
age, and if so, it installs debian/changelog into usr/share/doc/pack
age/changelog in the package build directory. Otherwise, it installs
debian/changelog into usr/share/doc/package/changelog.Debian in the
package build directory. (If files named debian/package.changelog
exist, they will be used in preference to debian/changelog.)
Parallelling the debian changelog handling, this program also takes
care of NEWS.Debian files. If there is a debian/NEWS file, it is
installed as usr/share/doc/package/NEWS.Debian. debian/package.NEWS
files can also be used.
If an upstream changelog file is specified as an option, then this
upstream changelog will be installed as usr/share/doc/package/changelog
in the package build directory. If the changelog is a html file (deter
mined by file extension), it will be installed as usr/share/doc/pack
age/changelog.html instead, and will be converted to plain text with
html2text to generate usr/share/doc/package/changelog.
Keep the original name of the upstream changelog. This will be
accomplished by installing the upstream changelog as "changelog",
and making a symlink from that to the original name of the
changelog file. This can be useful if the upstream changelog has an
unusual name, or if other documentation in the package refers to
the changelog file.
Install this file as the upstream changelog.
This program is a part of debhelper.
