NAME

dh_installxmlcatalogs – install and register XML catalog files

SYNOPSIS

dh_installxmlcatalogs [debhelper options] [-n]

DESCRIPTION

dh_installxmlcatalogs is a debhelper program that installs and
registers XML catalog files. It complies with the Debian XML/SGML
policy.

The file debian/package.xmlcatalogs lists the local XML catalog files
to be installed per package as well as the XML entities in those local
XML catalog files that are to be registered in the XML catalog system.

The local XML catalog file entries in that file should be of the form
“local;source;dest”, where the verbatim “local” indicates this is an
entry for a local XML catalog file, “source” indicates where the local
XML catalog resides in the source tree, and “dest” indicates the
destination location for the local XML catalog under the package build
area. “dest” should start with /usr/share/xml/.

The entries for the XML entities to be registered in the package XML
catalog file should be of the form “package;type;id;catalog”, where the
verbatim “package” indicates this is an entry for an XML entity to be
registered in the package XML catalog file, “type” indicates the XML
entity type (public, system, uri), “id” indicates the XML entity id,
and “catalog” indicates the local XML catalog file.

The entries for the XML entities to be registered in the root XML
catalog file should be of the form “root;type;id”, where the verbatim
“root” indicates this is an entry for an XML entity to be registered in
the root XML catalog file, “type” indicates the XML entity type
(public, system, uri), and “id” indicates the XML entity id.

If an entry for is to be registered identically in the root catalog and
the package catalog file, you can use the form
“root-and-package;type;id;catalog”, where the verbatim
“root-and-package” indicates this is an entry for an XML entity to be
registered in both the root and package XML catalog files, “type”
indicates the XML entity type (public, system, uri), “id” indicates the
XML entity id, and “catalog” indicates the local XML catalog file.

XML entity types are described in update-xmlcatalog(8). Using the
“root” or “package” commands, a type of “public” will general
“delegatePublic” statements in the applicable catalog file. Generally
you will want to use the types “public” for any formal public
identifiers, and “system” for any files on the local filesystem or
URLs. “uri” is only used for non-local files which are not part of the
external document subset, e.g., they are not used for entities or DTDs.

dh_installxmlcatalogs automatically adds maintainer script snippets for
the registration and unregistration of the listed XML entities in the
XML catalog system (unless -n is used). A dependency on the xml-core
package will be added to “${misc:Depends}”, so be sure to use that
variable in the file debian/control. See dh_installdeb(1) for an
explanation of Debhelper maintainer script snippets.

OPTIONS

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

NOTES
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.
