dh_gnustep - moves files in the GNUstep hierarchy to FHS-compliant locations

dh_gnustep [debhelper options]

dh_gnustep is a program based on debhelper that is responsible for doing GNUstep-specific modifications, such as moving files in the GNUstop hierarchy within the System domain, rooted at /usr/lib/GNUstep/System, to Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS)-compliant locations.

dh_gnustep makes the following changes:

Moves architecture-independent directories to /usr/share/GNUstep.
Moves library resources to /usr/share/GNUstep/Libraries.
Moves framework headers to /usr/include/GNUstep/Frameworks, and framework resources to /usr/share/GNUstep/Frameworks.

dh_gnustep accepts the common debhelper options.

If the DEB_GNUSTEP_NO_MOVE environment variable is set to a non-empty, non-zero value, then dh_gnustep exits without doing anything.

Should implement -X option.

Should do something with resources in .app bundles.

Should remove library_paths.openapp and stamp.make files.

Doesn't really do the right thing with info files (should call install-info).

Should do something with Java classes -- make a jar file and move from Library/Libraries/Java to /usr/share/java -- to comply with Java policy.

Debian policy, version 3.6.2

FHS, version 2.3


This program is not part of debhelper.
