dh_cligacpolicy - creates and installs a CLI policy file for a package

dh_cligacpolicy [debhelper options] [-n]

dh_cligacpolicy is a debhelper program that is responsible for creating, compiling, and installing policy files for a Debian package. This automatically includes postinst and prerm commands needed to install these policies into the system.

Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.

This file uses the debian/cligacpolicy files (either policyassemblies or debian/packagename.cligacpolicy) to generate the policy file. It supports multiple versions of the policy, including mapping multiple versions to a single file.

The file format of the cligacpolicy file consists of five properties per line, each one separated by whitespace.

The fields can be separated with spaces or tabs. Comments start the line with # characters and blank lines are ignored.

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

For the log4net version, a policy file is used to map all versions from to into the current version.

debian/log4net.snk log4net 10


This program is a part of cli-common-dev.
