dh_cligacpolicy - creates and installs a CLI policy file for a package
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.
- -n, --noscripts
- Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.
This file uses the debian/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.
- Keyfile is a path, from the package root, to the
.snk file used to sign the assembly.
- Assembly is the name of the assembly, without the
.dll extension. For example, for log4net.dll, use log4net.
- Version Range can be a single four-part version,
such as 188.8.131.52, or a full range, such as 184.108.40.206-220.127.116.11. For a single
line, the first two numbers must be identical. To have an assembly apply to
multiple versions, such as 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124, there needs to be one line
for each version range.
- Assembly version is the version of the assembly
- Priority defines the priority of the policy files.
Typically, each version will increase the priority and contains all the
policy controls for prior versions.
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_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.
For the log4net 126.96.36.199 version, a policy file is used to map all versions from
188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 into the current version.
