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
       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.

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.,
              debbugs://bugs.debian.org/).

       Parent: vendor-name
              The value of this field determines the vendor name of the vendor that  this  vendor
              derives from.
