NAME

dh_octave_make - generate a Debian package from the sources of an Octave-Forge package

SYNOPSIS

dh_octave_make

DESCRIPTION

dh_octave_make is a helper script for generating a first version of a Debian package for an Octave-Forge package. The command should be launched from the top directory of the unpacked sources of an Octave-Forge package. A file called DESCRIPTION must be present, from which information about the package is gathered. The following files are generated with sensible contents, although they need further editing:

The files above are only created if they do not exist yet. This allows the use of dh_octave_make for updating an already debianized source tree.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

The environment variables DEBFULLNAME and DEBEMAIL are used for generating the identity of the developer, which will appear in debian/changelog and debian/copyright. If they do not exist, FULLNAME and EMAIL are used instead.
