Bug#575938: ITP: dh-autoreconf -- debhelper add-on to call autoreconf and clean up after the build



Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Julian Andres Klode <jak@debian.org>

* Package name    : dh-autoreconf
  Version         : 1
  Upstream Author : Julian Andres Klode <jak@debian.org>
* License         : GPL-2
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : debhelper add-on to call autoreconf and clean up after the build

Package: dh-autoreconf
Architecture: all
Depends: ${misc:Depends}, autoconf, automake | automaken, libtool
Description: debhelper add-on to call autoreconf and clean up after the build
 dh-autoreconf provides a debhelper sequence addon named 'autoreconf' and two
 commands, dh_autoreconf and dh_autoreconf_clean.
 .
 The dh_autoreconf command creates a list of the files and their checksums,
 calls autoreconf and then creates a second list for the new files.
 .
 The dh_autoreconf_clean command compares these two lists and removes all
 files which have been added or changed (files may be excluded if needed).

I am using this inside the gnome-main-menu package and it works perfectly,
although a bit slow because it creates md5sums of the whole source tree
two times (I may add an option to use timestamp+size instead for larger
source packages).

(Please note that I'm not subscribed to debian-devel, so please keep the
 bug report or me in To/CC)
