dh_installzope - install zope product and extension files into package build directories


dh_installzope [debhelper options] [-n] [-Xitem] [dir ...]


dh_installzope is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing zope products and
extensions into package build directories.

Directory names are interpreted as zope product names and will be installed into the first
package dh_installzope is told to act on. By default, this is the first binary package in
debian/control, but if you use -p, -i, or -a flags, it will be the first package specified
by those flags.

dh_installzope automatically installs debian/dzproduct and debian/dzextension if it
exists. If dh_installzope is acting on multiple packages, debian/dzproduct and
debian/dzextension files will be installed into the first package. Use
debian/package.dzproduct and debian/package.dzextension for different binary packages.

If your package needs to register more than one product or extension, you need multiple
files. To accomplish this, you can use files named debian/package.dzproduct.* and

Missing dzproduct and dzextension files for the first package dh_installzope is told to
act on are generated and installed automatically.

The substitution variable zope:Depends is replaced by a list of the available zope


-n, --noscripts
Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.

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

directory ...
Install these directories as products into the first package acted on.


This is an example of a debian/package.dzproduct file:

Package: zope-cmfdefault1.4
Name: CMFDefault
Directory: CMFDefault:1.4
Depends: CMFTopic:1.4
Version: 1.4.7-1
ZopeVersions: 2.9 2.8

The Version field is added or updated by dh_installzope. If Name and Directory match, the
latter can be omitted. A deviating Directory is used to install different product
versions. A Directory has the form <product name>[:<suffix>].

It is possible to specify the list of zope versions for the 2.x serie using a >= relation,
like in this example:

Package: zope-psycopgda
ZopeVersions: >= 2.7

This allows bin-NMUs of zope products on new Zope 2.x major versions, and for this reason
it should be the preferred syntax.


Note that this command is not idempotent. "dh_clean -k" should be called between
invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple instances of the same text
to be added to maintainer scripts.
