Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.52
Severity: wishlist

Dear CDBS-Hackers,

please don't forget to include this feature as soon as debhelper (>= 
7) is shipped in Debian stable. The difference between calling 
'dh_prep' instead of 'dh_clean -k' is that the latter also removes the 
files listed in debian/clean, which is sometimes (most certainly!) not 
what you want the install rule to do.
