NAME

       dh_germinate_metapackage - create metapackages based on seeds

SYNOPSIS

       dh_germinate_metapackage [debhelper options]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_germinate_metapackage is a debhelper program that generates ${germinate:Depends}
       substitutions and adds them to substvars files.

       The program will read the "metapackage-map" file that should have been created by a
       previous run of "germinate-update-metapackage" for your package, and for each seed listed
       there it will generate dependencies and recommendations based on the previous results of
       "germinate-update-metapackage". Dependencies will be substituted into your package's
       control file wherever you place the token "${germinate:Depends}", and similarly
       recommendations will be substituted wherever you place the token
       "${germinate:Recommends}".

       You must run "germinate-update-metapackage" before building the source package. Normally,
       source packages that use this program will include an "update" script that will call it
       with appropriate arguments.

EXAMPLES

       dh_germinate_metapackage is usually called indirectly in a rules file via the dh command.

               %:
                       dh $@ --with germinate

       You must build-depend on at least debhelper (>= 7.0.8) to use this form, and in any case
       you must build-depend on at least germinate (>= 1.18) to use this program at all.

       It can also be called directly at any time between "dh_prep" and "dh_installdeb".

               install: build
                       dh_testdir
                       dh_testroot
                       dh_prep
                       dh_installdirs
                       dh_germinate_metapackage

               binary-arch: build install
                       ...
