NAME
       dh_installchangelogs - install changelogs into package build
       directories

SYNOPSIS
       dh_installchangelogs [debhelperoptions] [-k] [-Xitem] [upstream]

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

       An upstream changelog file may be specified as an option. If none is
       specified, it looks for files with names that seem likely to be
       changelogs.  (In compatibility level 7 and above.)

       If there is an upstream changelog file, it will be installed as
       usr/share/doc/package/changelog in the package build directory.

       If the upstream changelog is an html file (determined by file
       extension), it will be installed as
       usr/share/doc/package/changelog.html instead. If the html changelog is
       converted to plain text, that variant can be specified as a second
       upstream changelog file. When no plain text variant is specified, a
       short usr/share/doc/package/changelog is generated, pointing readers at
       the html changelog file.

FILES
       debian/changelog
       debian/NEWS
       debian/package.changelog
       debian/package.NEWS
           Automatically installed into usr/share/doc/package/ in the package
           build directory.

           Use the package specific name if package needs a different NEWS or
           changelog file.

           The changelog file is installed with a name of changelog for native
           packages, and changelog.Debian for non-native packages.  The NEWS
           file is always installed with a name of NEWS.Debian.

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.

       -Xitem, --exclude=item
           Exclude upstream changelog files that contain item anywhere in
           their filename from being installed.

       upstream
           Install this file as the upstream changelog.
