SYNOPSIS         top

       dh_bugfiles [-A] [debhelper options]

DESCRIPTION         top

       dh_bugfiles is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing
       bug reporting customization files (bug scripts and/or bug control
       files and/or presubj files) into package build directories.

FILES         top

           This is the script to be run by the bug reporting program for
           generating a bug report template. This file is installed as
           usr/share/bug/package in the package build directory if no other
           types of bug reporting customization files are going to be
           installed for the package in question. Otherwise, this file is
           installed as usr/share/bug/package/script. Finally, the installed
           script is given execute permissions.

           It is the bug control file containing some directions for the bug
           reporting tool. This file is installed as
           usr/share/bug/package/control in the package build directory.

           The contents of this file are displayed to the user by the bug
           reporting tool before allowing the user to write a bug report on
           the package to the Debian Bug Tracking System. This file is
           installed as usr/share/bug/package/presubj in the package build
