deb-origin - Vendor-specific information files
The files in /etc/dpkg/origins can provide information about various
vendors who are providing Debian packages.
They contain a number of fields, or comments when the line starts with
'#'. Each field begins with a tag, such as Vendor or Parent, followed
by a colon and the body of the field. Fields are delimited only by
field tags. In other words, field text may be multiple lines in length,
but the tools will join lines when processing the body of the field.
The file should be named according to the vendor name. The usual
convention is to name the vendor file using the vendor name in all
lowercase, but some variation is permitted. Namely, spaces are mapped
to dashes ('-'), and the file can have the same casing as the value in
Vendor field, or it can be capitalized.

bug tracking system used by this vendor. It can be a mailto URL
or a debbugs URL (e.g., debbugs://bugs.debian.org/).
The value of this field determines the vendor name of the vendor
that this vendor derives from.
