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.
