NAME
       deb-origin - Vendor-specific information	files

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/etc/dpkg/origins/filename

DESCRIPTION
       The  files in /usr/local/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.

       The file	should be named	according  to  the  vendor  name.   The	 usual
       convention  is  to  name	 the  vendor file using	the vendor name	in all
       lowercase, but some variation is	permitted.  Namely, spaces are	mapped
       to  dashes (`-'), and the file can have the same	casing as the value in
       Vendor field, or	it can be capitalized.

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.

EXAMPLE
       Vendor: Debian
       Vendor-URL: https://www.debian.org/
       Bugs: debbugs://bugs.debian.org
