debhelper 13.6ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


debhelper (13.6ubuntu1) jammy; urgency=medium

  * Merge from Debian unstable (LP: #1960248). Remaining changes:
    - Generate ddebs from debhelper instead of pkg-create-dbgsym:
      - Set DBGSYM_PACKAGE_TYPE to ddeb to get correct debian/files output.
    - dh_installchangelogs: Do not install upstream changelog in compat level
      7 and higher to avoid pointlessly bloating installed packages.
    - dh_strip: Strip LTO sections unless --keep-lto is given.
    - dh_strip: For a static archive, test if any .text sections are non-
      empty. Warn on empty archives.
    - objcopy/strip changed in 2.36.1, not keeping file attributes of the
      original file. Work around that in dh_strip to write to a temporary file
      and cat'ing this to the original file to keep the original attributes.
    - Imply '<!noudeb>' profile if not set on package type udeb.
    - dh_strip: Set a unique build-id before stripping files.
    - Allow dh_strip to be larger for the tests
  * Add awk dependency implied by empty .text section check
  * Fix restart behaviour of packages marked either
    - no-stop-on-upgrade or --no-restart-after-upgrade (LP: #1959054)

    outputs information about which compat level is declared

    only needed for dh_strip_nondeterminism.
