NAME         top

       deb-conffiles - package conffiles

SYNOPSIS         top

       conffiles

DESCRIPTION         top

       A package declares its list of conffiles by including a conffiles
       file in its control archive (i.e. DEBIAN/conffiles during package
       creation).

       This file contains a list of files, one per line.  They should be
       listed as absolute pathnames, and should exist in the binary package,
       otherwise dpkg(1) will ignore them (although by default dpkg-deb(1)
       will refuse to build such binary packages).  Trailing whitespace will
       be trimmed, and empty lines will be ignored.
