NAME

       deb-extra-override - Debian archive extra override file

SYNOPSIS

       override

DESCRIPTION

       While  most  information  about  a  binary/source package can be found in the control/.dsc
       file, all of it can be overridden when it's exported to Packages/Sources files. The  extra
       override file contains those overrides.

       The  extra  override  file  has a simple whitespace-delimited format. Comments are allowed
       (denoted with a #).

            package field-name value

       package is the name of the binary/source package.

       field-name is the name of the field that is overridden.  value is the value to put in  the
       field.  It  can  contain  spaces  as the line is split in no more than 3 columns when it's
       parsed.

       The extra override files used to make the official Packages lists  may  be  found  in  the
       indices directory on any Debian mirror.
