Yeah but I was talking about a debian/rules like
Here, you can be sure that binary-indep is ignored. (In other words,
there will only be a call from the build tools to "debian/rules
binary" which will invoke "dh binary", which in turn will run "dh
binary-indep", ... but not "debian/rules binary-indep".
So one should mention somewhere that since the introduction of
some targets in debian/rules have become obsolete, and what one could
do to achieve the old behavior with the new "syntax".
