NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installchangelogs - install changelogs into package build directories

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installchangelogs [<debhelper options] [-k] [upstream]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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 package,
 and if so, it installs debian/changelog into usr/share/doc/package/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.)

       If an upstream changelog file is specified as an option, and the package
 is not a native debian package, 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 (determined by file extension),
 it will be installed as usr/share/doc/package/changelog.html
       instead, and will be converted to plain text with html2text to generate

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       -k, --keep
	   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.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       It is an error to specify an upstream changelog file for a debian
       native package.
