Re: Getting dh_install to do what we need

On the other hand we do have packages with executable debhelper files
that are NOT scripts. Debhelper currently breaks those. The execute
scripts feature should use a compat level.
I have made hundreds of changes to debhelper that broke buggy packages
without using compat levels; that is not what compat levels are for.
Huh? "Some files in debian/* are executable, but they don't need to"
would hardly qualifies even for a severity:minor bug.
