NAME

       dh_usrlocal - migrate usr/local directories to maintainer scripts

SYNOPSIS

       dh_usrlocal [debhelper options] [-n]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_usrlocal is a debhelper program that can be used for building packages that will
       provide a subdirectory in /usr/local when installed.

       It finds subdirectories of usr/local in the package build directory, and removes them,
       replacing them with maintainer script snippets (unless -n is used) to create the
       directories at install time, and remove them when the package is removed, in a manner
       compliant with Debian policy. These snippets are inserted into the maintainer scripts by
       dh_installdeb. See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of debhelper maintainer script
       snippets.

       When the DEB_RULES_REQUIRES_ROOT environment variable is not (effectively) binary-targets,
       the directories in /usr/local will be handled as if they were owned by root:root (see
       below).

       When the DEB_RULES_REQUIRES_ROOT environment variable has an effective value of binary-
       targets, the owners, groups and permissions will be preserved with the sole exception
       where the directory is owned by root:root.

       If a directory is owned by root:root, then ownership will be determined at install time.
       The ownership and permission bits will either be root:root mode 0755 or root:staff mode
       02775.  The actual choice depends on whether the system has /etc/staff-group-for-usr-local
       (as documented in the Debian Policy Manual §9.1.2 since version 4.1.4)

OPTIONS

       -n, --no-scripts
           Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.

NOTES

       Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called between invocations
       of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple instances of the same text to be added
       to maintainer scripts.

CONFORMS TO

       Debian policy, version 2.2
