       deb-src-files - Debian distribute files format

SYNOPSIS         top


DESCRIPTION         top

       This file contains the list of artifacts that are to be
       distributed via the .changes control file.

       The debian/files file has a simple whitespace-delimited format.

           filename section priority [ keyword=value...  ]

       filename is the name of the artifact to distribute.

       section and priority correspond to the respective control fields
       available in the .deb.  The allowed values are specific to each
       distribution archive.

       keyword=value...  corresponds to an optional whitespace-delimited
       list of attributes for this entry.  The only currently supported
       keyword is automatic with value yes, to mark automatically
       generated files.
