NAME

       dh_suidregister - suid registration program (deprecated)

SYNOPSIS

       Do not run!

DESCRIPTION

       This program used to register suid and sgid files with suidregister(1), but with the
       introduction of dpkg-statoverride(8), registration of files in this way is unnecessary,
       and even harmful, so this program is deprecated and should not be used.

CONVERTING TO STATOVERRIDE

       Converting a package that uses this program to use the new statoverride mechanism is easy.
       Just remove the call to dh_suidregister from debian/rules, and add a versioned conflicts
       into your control file, as follows:

         Conflicts: suidmanager (<< 0.50)

       The conflicts is only necessary if your package used to register things with suidmanager;
       if it did not, you can just remove the call to this program from your rules file.
