       dh_installzope - install zope product and extension files into package
       build directories


       dh_installzope [debhelper options] [-n] [-Xitem] [dir ...]


       dh_installzope is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       installing zope products and extensions into package build directories.

       Directory names are interpreted as zope product names and will be
       installed into the first package dh_installzope is told to act on. By
       default, this is the first binary package in debian/control, but if you
       use -p, -i, or -a flags, it will be the first package specified by
       those flags.

       dh_installzope automatically installs debian/dzproduct and
       debian/dzextension if it exists. If dh_installzope is acting on
       multiple packages, debian/dzproduct and debian/dzextension files will
       be installed into the first package.  Use debian/package.dzproduct and
       debian/package.dzextension for different binary packages.

       If your package needs to register more than one product or extension,
       you need multiple files. To accomplish this, you can use files named
       debian/package.dzproduct.* and  debian/package.dzextension.*

       Missing dzproduct and dzextension files for the first package
       dh_installzope is told to act on are generated and installed

       The substitution variable zope:Depends is replaced by a list of the
       available zope versions.


       -n, --noscripts
           Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.

       -Xitem, --exclude=item
           Exclude files that contain "item" anywhere in their filename from
           being installed.

       directory ...
           Install these directories as products into the first package acted


       This is an example of a debian/package.dzproduct file:

         Package: zope-cmfdefault1.4
         Name: CMFDefault
         Directory: CMFDefault:1.4
         Depends: CMFTopic:1.4
         Version: 1.4.7-1
         ZopeVersions: 2.9 2.8

       The Version field is added or updated by dh_installzope. If Name and
       Directory match, the latter can be omitted.  A deviating Directory is
       used to install different product versions. A Directory has the form
       <product name>[:<suffix>].

       It is possible to specify the list of zope versions for the 2.x serie
       using a >= relation, like in this example:

         Package: zope-psycopgda
         ZopeVersions: >= 2.7

       This allows bin-NMUs of zope products on new Zope 2.x major versions,
       and for this reason it should be the preferred syntax.


       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.



       This program is a part of zope-debhelper.
