    Command:

    deb-override

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           override
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           While  most  information  about  a  package can be found in the control
           file, some is managed centrally by the distribution czars  rather  than
           by  the  maintainer  in  order  to offer some global consistency.  This
           information is found in the override file.
    
           The override file has a simple  whitespace-delimited  format.  Comments
           are allowed (denoted with a #).
    
                package priority section [maintainerinfo]
    
           package  is  the  name of the package. Entries in the override file for
           packages not found in the tree of binary packages are ignored.
    
           priority and section correspond to the respective control fields avail-
           able in the .deb. The allowed values are listed in the Debian policy.
    
           maintainerinfo,  if present, can be either the name of a maintainer for
           an unconditional override, or else oldmaintainer  =>  newmaintainer  to
           perform a substitution.
    
           The  override  files  used  to  make the official Packages lists may be
           found in the indices directory on any Debian mirror.
