dh_installchangelogs - install changelogs into package build directories
dh_installchangelogs [debhelperoptions] [-k] [-Xitem] [upstream]
dh_installchangelogs is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing changelogs into package build directories.
An upstream changelog file may be specified as an option.
If there is an upstream changelog file, it will be installed as usr/share/doc/package/changelog in the package build directory.
If the upstream changelog is an html file (determined by file extension), it will be installed as usr/share/doc/package/changelog.html
instead. If the html changelog is converted to plain text, that variant can be specified as a second upstream changelog file. When no plain
text variant is specified, a short usr/share/doc/package/changelog is generated, pointing readers at the html changelog file.
Automatically installed into usr/share/doc/package/ in the package build directory.
Use the package specific name if package needs a different NEWS or changelog file.
The changelog file is installed with a name of changelog for native packages, and changelog.Debian for non-native packages. The NEWS
file is always installed with a name of NEWS.Debian.
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.
Exclude upstream changelog files that contain item anywhere in their filename from being installed.
Install this file as the upstream changelog.
This program is a part of debhelper.
