       dh_installzopeinstance - install a zope instance into package build


       dh_installzopeinstance [debhelper options] [-n] [instance name]


       dh_installzopeinstance is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       installing zope instances into package build directories.

       The argument is interpreted as zope instance and will be created within
       the first package dh_installzopeinstance 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_installzopeinstance automatically install debian/dzinstance if it
       exists.  If dh_installzopeinstance is acting on multiple packages,
       debian/dzinstance file will be installed into the first package. Use
       debian/package.dzinstance for different binary packages.

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


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

       instance name
           This parameter will be considered as an instance name which will be
           installed into the first package acted on.


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

         Package: plone-site
         ZopeVersion: 2.9
         Name: plone-site
         Addon-Mode: manual
         Addon-Technique: tree-linked
         Restart-Policy: end
         Products: CMFPlone
         Skeleton: /usr/lib/zope2.9/skel-with-magic

       The Products field specify a list of comma separated products that will
       be automatically installed into the instance. Obviously, it has no
       sense if the Addon-Mode field contains ’all’.  The optional Skeleton
       field specifies a path which is used as skeleton for the new zope


       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.
