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 pro‐ viding 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.
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., deb‐ bugs://bugs.debian.org/). Parent: vendor-name The value of this field determines the vendor name of the vendor that this vendor derives from.
EXAMPLE Vendor: Debian Vendor-URL: https://www.debian.org/ Bugs: debbugs://bugs.debian.org
