dh_testversion - ensure that the correct version of debhelper is installed
dh_testversion [''debhelper options''?
Note: This program is deprecated. You should use build
dh_testversion compares the version of debhelper against the
version you specify, and if the condition is not met, exits
with an error message.
You can use this in your debian/rules files if a new
debhelper feature is introduced, and your package requires
that feature to build correctly. Use debhelper's changelog
to figure out the version you need.
Be sure not to overuse dh_testversion. If debhelper version
9.5 introduces a new dh_autofixbugs command, and your
package uses it, then if someone tries to build it with
debhelper 1.0, the build will fail anyway when
dh_autofixbugs cannot be found, so there is no need for you
to use dh_testversion.
