NAMEdh_installdebconf - install files used by debconf in package build directories
SYNOPSISdh_installdebconf [debhelper options] [-n] [-- params]
DESCRIPTIONdh_installdebconf is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing files used by the debconf package into package build directories.
It also automatically generates the postrm commands needed to interface with debconf. See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how that works.
Files named debian/package.config and debian/package.templates are installed into the DEBIAN directory in the package build directory.
LOCALIZED TEMPLATE FILESDebconf also supports localized template files, and this program has some support to aid working with them. You may find it easiest to keep the translations in separate files, and merge them only at build time. See debconf-mergetemplate(1) and debconf-getlang(1) for details.
This program will automatically call debconf-mergetemplate and merge templates on the fly if it finds your template files are accompanied by translated files that have the same name as the template file, with a dot and a locale name repended.
