deb-origin


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.

REQUIRED FIELDS
       Vendor: vendor-name
              The value of this field determines the vendor name.

OPTIONAL FIELDS
       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.
