SYNOPSIS

       debian/files

DESCRIPTION

       This  file  contains  the  list  of  artifacts that are to be distributed via the .changes
       control file.

       The debian/files file has a simple whitespace-delimited format.

            filename section priority [ keyword=value... ]

       filename is the name of the artifact to distribute.

       section and priority correspond to the respective control fields available  in  the  .deb.
       The allowed values are specific to each distribution archive.

       keyword=value...  corresponds  to  an optional whitespace-delimited list of attributes for
       this entry.  The only currently supported keyword is automatic with  value  yes,  to  mark
       automatically generated files.
