Debhelper is a collection of programs that can be used in a debian/rules file to automate common tasks related to building binary debian packages. Programs are included to install various files into your package, compress files, fix file permissions, integrate your package with the debian menu system, etc. This will be of use only to debian developers or others who wish to build debian packages.
An interesting graph of how many packages have used Debhelper over the years is available.
I welcome all bug reports, feature requests, and comments. Just email me, or send me a standard debian bug report.
