NAME

       deb-conffiles - package conffiles

SYNOPSIS

       conffiles

DESCRIPTION

       A  package  declares  its  list  of conffiles by including a conffiles file in its control
       archive (i.e. DEBIAN/conffiles during package creation).

       This file contains a list of files, one per line.   They  should  be  listed  as  absolute
       pathnames,  and  should  exist  in  the binary package, otherwise dpkg(1) will ignore them
       (although by default dpkg-deb(1) will refuse to build  such  binary  packages).   Trailing
       whitespace will be trimmed, and empty lines will be ignored.

EXAMPLE

       /etc/alternatives/README
       /etc/cron.daily/dpkg
       /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg
       /etc/logrotate.d/dpkg
