  * Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
    - autoscripts/*-init*: Test for /etc/init/*.conf where necessary.
    - 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_strip: Revert commit f1a803456 to disable ddebs generation by default.
    This first needs adjustments in Launchpad and ddebs.u.c., and dropping

debhelper: helper programs for debian/rules

 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
