NAME
       dh_usrlocal - migrate usr/local directories to maintainer scripts

SYNOPSIS
       dh_usrlocal [debhelperoptions] [-n]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_usrlocal is a debhelper program that can be used for building
       packages that will provide a subdirectory in /usr/local when installed.

       It finds subdirectories of usr/local in the package build directory,
       and removes them, replacing them with maintainer script snippets
       (unless -n is used) to create the directories at install time, and
       remove them when the package is removed, in a manner compliant with
       Debian policy. These snippets are inserted into the maintainer scripts
       by dh_installdeb. See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of debhelper
       maintainer script snippets.

       When the Rules-Requires-Root field is not (effectively) binary-targets,
       the directories in /usr/local will have ownership root:staff and the
       mode will be 02775.  These values have been chosen to comply with the
       recommendations of the Debian policy for directories in /usr/local.

       When Rules-Requires-Root has an effective value of binary-targets, the
       owners, groups and permissions will be preserved with one exception.
       If the directory is owned by root:root, then ownership will be reset to
       root:staff and mode will be reset to 02775. This is useful, since that
       is the group and mode policy recommends for directories in /usr/local.

OPTIONS
       -n, --no-scripts
           Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.

NOTES
       Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called
       between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple
       instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.

CONFORMS TO
       Debian policy, version 2.2
