NAME

Config::Model::models::Debian::Dpkg::Copyright - Configuration class Debian::Dpkg::Copyright

VERSION

version 1.265

DESCRIPTION

Configuration classes used by Config::Model

Machine-readable debian/copyright. Parameters from former version of DEP-5 are flagged as deprecated. The idea is to enable migration from older specs to CANDIDATE spec.

To edit a copyright file, go into your package development directory and run:

  config-edit -application dpkg-copyright
   

To check you file run:

  config-edit -application dpkg-copyright -ui none
    

To upgrade your file from an old spec, run:

  config-edit -application dpkg-copyright -ui none -save
