deb-origin(5)                     dpkg suite                     deb-origin(5)

NAME
       deb-origin - Vendor-specific information files

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/dpkg/origins/filename

DESCRIPTION
       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.

FIELDS
       Vendor: vendor-name (required)
              The value of this field determines the vendor name.

       Vendor-URL: vendor-url
              The value of this field determines the vendor URL.

       Bugs: bug-url
              The value of this field determines the type and address  of  the
              bug  tracking system used by this vendor. It can be a mailto URL
              or a debbugs URL (e.g., debbugs://bugs.debian.org/).

       Parent: vendor-name
              The value of this field determines the vendor name of the vendor
              that this vendor derives from.
