NAME

       dh_installchangelogs - install changelogs into package build directories

SYNOPSIS

       dh_installchangelogs [debhelperĀ options] [-k] [-Xitem] [upstream]

DESCRIPTION

       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 specified 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.

FILES

       debian/changelog
       debian/NEWS
       debian/package.changelog
       debian/package.NEWS
           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.

OPTIONS

       -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.

       -Xitem, --exclude=item
           Exclude upstream changelog files that contain item anywhere in their filename from
           being installed.

           Note that directory name of the changelog is also part of the match.

       upstream
           Install this file as the upstream changelog.
