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.
