dh_installchangelogs - install changelogs into package build
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
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.)
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.
An upstream changelog file may be specified as an option. If none is
specified, a few common filenames are tried. (In compatibility level 7
If there is an upstream changelog file, it will be 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
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.
