NAME

dh-dist-zilla - debhelper add-on to run dzil (Dist::Zilla) during build

DESCRIPTION

The dh-dist-zilla package provides a sequence addon for debhelper 7 which can be used in the following way: #!/usr/bin/make -f export DH_VERBOSE=1 %: dh $@ --with dist-zilla This will call "dzil build" prior to "dh_auto_configure", "dzil clean" before "dh_clean" and will add the option "-D build-directory" to "dh_auto_configure", "dh_auto_build", "dh_auto_install", and "dh_auto_test". How to generate the .orig.tar.xz "upstream" tar-ball A `debian/rules` file as mentioned above also provides a `get-orig-source` target to generate a source tar ball which contains the minimal necessary contents (compared to the contents of tar-ball for CPAN which would require some additional, generated meta data files): make -f debian/rules get-orig-source Or if your `debian/rules` file is executable, you can also just call it like this: debian/rules get-orig-source If you want to type even less, there's also a `origtar` alias (named after the `origtargz` script from the `devscripts` package) for this target: debian/rules origtar
