NAME

       dh_installchangelogs - install changelogs into package build
       directories

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       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.

       An upstream changelog file may be specified as an option. If none is
       specified, a few common filenames are tried. (In compatibility level 7
       and above.)

       If there is an upstream changelog file, it will be 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.

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.

       upstream
           Install this file as the upstream changelog.
