debhelper 9.20151126ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


debhelper (9.20151126ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium

  * Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
    - autoscripts/*-init*: Test for /etc/init/*.conf where necessary. This
      uses the #SCRIPT# macro twice, thus in dh_installinit, replace all
      occurrences of that not just the first one.
    - dh_installchangelogs: Do not install upstream changelog in compat
      level 7.  This floods packages with huge upstream changelogs which
      take precious CD space.
    - dh_installinit: Add dependency to lsb-base >= 4.1+Debian11ubuntu7 that
      provides the upstart LSB hook, to avoid upgrade breakage. This change
      can be dropped after 16.04 LTS.

  * dh_compress: Apply patch from Michael Biebl to skip
    compression of .devhelp2 files.  (Closes: #789153)
  * dh_installinit: Undo "Disable initscripts when a package is
    removed (but not yet purged)". (Reopens #749400,
    Closes: #806276)

 A collection of programs that can be used in a debian/rules file to
 automate common tasks related to building Debian packages. Programs
 are included to install various files into your package, compress
 files, fix file permissions, integrate your package with the Debian
 menu system, debconf, doc-base, etc. Most Debian packages use debhelper
 as part of their build process.
