       dh_installchangelogs - install changelogs into package build


       dh_installchangelogs [debhelper options] [-k] [upstream]


       dh_installchangelogs is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       installing changelogs into package build directories.

       dh_installchangelogs determines if the package is a debian native
       package, and if so, it installs debian/changelog into
       usr/share/doc/package/changelog in the package build directory.
       Otherwise, it installs debian/changelog into
       usr/share/doc/package/changelog.Debian in the package build directory.
       (If files named debian/package.changelog exist, they will be used in
       preference to debian/changelog.)

       Parallelling the debian changelog handling, this program also takes
       care of NEWS.Debian files. If there is a debian/NEWS file, it is
       installed as usr/share/doc/package/NEWS.Debian. debian/package.NEWS
       files can also be used.

       If an upstream changelog file is specified as an option, then this
       upstream changelog will be installed as usr/share/doc/package/changelog
       in the package build directory. If the changelog is a html file
       (determined by file extension), it will be installed as
       usr/share/doc/package/changelog.html instead, and will be converted to
       plain text with html2text to generate usr/share/doc/package/changelog.


       -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.

           Install this file as the upstream changelog.



       This program is a part of debhelper.
