[Build-common-hackers] Bug#448507: cdbs: documentation suggests binary/foo::, but it only runs after .debs are already packed up

Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.49
Severity: normal

In documentation, it is suggested that binary/<package>:: should be
used for post-installation (post-deb-preparation) actions and an
example is given:

   strip --remove-section=.comment --remove-section=.note --strip-unneeded \

However, this only runs after the binary .deb is packed up, so the
command is useless (the unstripped version of binary is already part
of the .deb). The right hook seems to read binary-install/<package>.

Yours, Peter.
