+.SH NAME
+deb-src-control - Debian source packages' master control file format
+.
+.SH SYNOPSIS
+control
+.
+.SH DESCRIPTION
+Each Debian source package contains the master `control' file, which contains
+at least 2 paragraphs, separated by a blank line. The first paragraph lists
+all information about the source package in general, while each following
+paragraph describes exactly one binary package. Each paragraph consists of at
+least one field. A field starts with a fieldname, such as
+.B Package
+or
+.B Section
+(case insensitive), followed by a colon, the body of the field and a newline.
+Multi-line fields are also allowed, but each supplementary line, without a
+fieldname, should start with at least one space. The content of the multi-line
+fields is generally joined to a single line by the tools (except in the case of
+the
+.B Description
+field, see below). To insert empty lines into a multi-line
+field, insert a dot after the space. The paragraphs are separated by an empty
+line. Lines starting with a fB'#'fP are treated as comments.
+.
+.SH SOURCE FIELDS
+.TP
+.BR Source: " <source package name> (required)"
+The value of this field is the name of the source package, and should
+match the name of the source package in the debian/changelog file. A package
+name must consist only of lower case letters (a-z), digits (0-9), plus (+) and
+minus (-) signs, and periods (.). Package names must be at least two characters
+long and must start with an alphanumeric character.
+
+.TP
+.BR Maintainer: " <fullname email> (required)"
+Should be in the format `Joe Bloggs <jbloggs@foo.com>', and references the
+person who currently maintains the package, as opposed to the author of the
+software or the original packager.
+
+.TP
+.BR Uploaders: " <fullname email>"
+Lists all the names and email addresses of co-maintainers of the package, in
+the same format as the Maintainer field. Multiple co-maintainers should be
+separated by a comma.
+
+.TP
+.BR Standards-Version: " <version string>"
+This documents the most recent version of the standards (which consists of the
+Debian Policy Manual and referenced texts from the
+.B debian-policy
+package) this package complies to.
+
+.TP
+.BR DM-Upload-Allowed: " <yes|no>"
+This field indicates whether the package can be uploaded by Debian Maintainers
+appearing in the Maintainer or Uploaders field. The default value is `no'.
+
+.TP
+.BR Homepage: " <url>"
+The upstream project home page URL.
+
+.TP
+.BR Bugs: " <url>"
+The url of the bug tracking system for this package. The current used format
+is fB<bts_type>://<bts_address>fP, like fBdebbugs://bugs.debian.orgfP. This
+field is usually not needed.
+
+.TP
+.BR Vcs-*: " <url>"
+The url of the Version Control System repository used to maintain this package.
+Currently supported are Arch, Bzr (Bazaar), Cvs, Darcs, Git, Hg (Mercurial),
+Mtn (Monotone) and Svn (Subversion). Usually this field points to the latest
+version of the package, such as the main branch or the trunk.
+
+.TP
+.BR Vcs-Browser: " <url>"
+The url of a webinterface to browse the Version Control System repository.
+
+.TP
+.BR Origin: " <name>"
+The name of the distribution this package is originating from. This field is
+usually not needed.
+
+.TP
+.BR Section: " <section>"
+This is a general field that gives the package a category based on the
+software that it installs. Some common sections are `utils', `net',
+`mail', `text', `x11' etc.
+
+.TP
+.BR Priority: " <priority>"
+Sets the importance of this package in relation to the system as a whole.
+Common priorities are `required', `standard', `optional', `extra' etc.
+
+In Debian, the
+.B Section
+and
+.B Priority
+fields have a defined set of accepted values based on the Policy Manual.
+A list of these values can be obtained from the latest version of the
+.B debian-policy
+package.
+
+.TP
+.BR Build-Depends: " <package list>"
+A list of packages that need to be installed and configured to be able to build
+the source package.
+
+.TP
+.BR Build-Depends-Indep: " <package list>"
+Same as Build-Depends, but they are only needed when building the architecture
+independent
+packages. The Build-Depends are also installed in this case.
+
+.TP
+.BR Build-Conflicts: " <package list>"
+A list of packages that should not be installed when the package is build, for
+example because they interfere with the used build system.
+
+.TP
+.BR Build-Conflicts-Indep: " <package list>"
+Same as Build-Conflicts, but only when building the architecture independent
+packages.
+
+The syntax of the
+.B Build-Depends
+and
+.B Build-Depends-Indep
+fields is a list of groups of alternative packages. Each group is a list
+of packages separated by vertical bar (or `pipe') symbols, `|'. The
+groups are separated by commas. Commas are to be read as `AND', and pipes
+as `OR', with pipes binding more tightly. Each package name is
+optionally followed by a version number specification in parentheses and an
+architecture specification in square brackets.
+
+The syntax of the
+.B Build-Conflicts
+and
+.B Build-Conflicts-Indep
+fields is a list of comma-separated package names, where the comma is read
+as an `AND'. Specifying alternative packages using a `pipe' is not supported.
+Each package name is optionally followed by a version number specification in
+parentheses and an architecture specification in square brackets.
+
+A version number may start with a `>>', in which case any later version
+will match, and may specify or omit the Debian packaging revision (separated
+by a hyphen). Accepted version relationships are ">>" for greater than,
+"<<" for less than, ">=" for greater than or equal to, "<=" for less than
+or equal to, and "=" for equal to.
+
+A architecture specification consists of one or more architecture names,
+separated by whitespace. Exclamation marks may be prepended to each of the
+names, meaning `NOT'.
+
+Note that dependencies on packages in the
+.B build-essential
+set can be omitted and that declaring build conflicts against them is
+impossible. A list of these packages is in the build-essential package.
+
+
+.SH BINARY FIELDS
+
+.LP
+Note that the
+.BR Priority ", " Section
+and
+.B Homepage
+fields can also be in a binary paragraph to override the global value from the
+source package.
+
+.TP
+.BR Package: " <binary package name> (required)"
+This field is used to name the binary package name. The same restrictions as
+to a source package name apply.
+
+.TP
+.BR Architecture: " <arch|all|any> (required)"
+The architecture specifies on which type of hardware this package runs. For
+packages that run on all architectures, use the
+.B any
+value. For packages that are architecture independent, such as shell and Perl
+scripts or documentation, use the
+.B all
+value. To restrict the packages to a certain set of architectures, specify the
+architecture names, separated by a space.
+
+.TP
+.BR Package-Type: " <deb|udeb>"
+This field is used to mark that this a specific type of a package. The `udeb'
+value is for size-constrained packages used by the debian installer. The `deb'
+value is the default value and is not needed to be given explicit. Future types
+can be added in the future.

+These fields declare relationships between packages. They are discussed in

+manpage and in the
+.B debian-policy
+package.
+
+.SH USER-DEFINED FIELDS
+It is allowed to add additional user-defined fields to the control file. The
+tools will ignore these fields. If you want the fields to be copied over to
+the output files, such as the binary packages, you need to use a custom naming
+scheme: the fields should start with a X, followed by one or more of the
+letters BCS and a hypen. If the letter B is used, the field will appear in the
+control file in the binary package, see
+.BR deb-control (5)
+, for the letter S in the source package control file as constructed by
+.BR dpkg-source (1)
+and for the letter C in the upload control (.changes) file. Note that the BCS
+letters are stripped when they are copied over to the output files. A field as
+XC-Approved-By will appear as Approved-By in the changes file and will not
+appear in the binary or source package control files.
