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
, 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.
- Vendor: vendor-name
- 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.
