deb-extra-override(5)     (2021-04-13)      deb-extra-override(5)

     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.
