dh_germinate_metapackage - create metapackages based on seeds


dh_germinate_metapackage [debhelper options]


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

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.


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

binary-arch: build install
