debdry is for debian/ directories what debhelper7 is for debian/rules.
It applies the Don't Repeat Yourself idea to packaging, attempting to reuse as
much as possible of upstream's metadata and standard packaging practices.
debdry runs an appropriate auto-debianisation tool for a given source
directory, then applies manual overrides from a directory.
debdry supports the following types of packages (in brackets you will find
extra packages that need to be installed for each type of package):
- Perl [dh-make-perl]
- Python [python-stdeb, python3-stdeb]
- Ruby [gem2deb]
- Haskell [cabal-debian]
