Dpkg::Vendor::Default - default vendor object
A vendor object is used to provide vendor specific behaviour in various
places. This is the default object used in case there's none for the
current vendor or in case the vendor could not be identified (see
It provides some hooks that are called by various dpkg-* tools. If you
need a new hook, please file a bug against dpkg-dev and explain your
need. Note that the hook API has no guaranty to be stable over an
extended period. If you run an important distribution that makes use of
vendor hooks, you'd better submit them for integration so that we avoid
breaking your code.
$vendor_obj = Dpkg::Vendor::Default->new()
Creates the default vendor object. Can be inherited by all vendor
objects if they don't need any specific initialization at object
Run the corresponding hook. The parameters are hook-specific. The
supported hooks are:
The first parameter is a Dpkg::Source::Package object. The
hook is called just before the execution of
The hook is called when dpkg-source is checking a signature
on a source package. It takes no parameters, but returns a
(possibly empty) list of vendor-specific keyrings.
The hook is called in Dpkg::Control::Fields to register
custom fields. You should return a list of arrays. Each
array is an operation to perform. The first item is the
name of the operation and corresponds to a field_* function
provided by Dpkg::Control::Fields. The remaining fields are
the parameters that are passed unchanged to the
Known operations are "register", "insert_after" and
The hook is called in Dpkg::Changelog to post-process a
Dpkg::Changelog::Entry after it has been created and filled
with the appropriate values.
The hook is called in Dpkg::BuildFlags to allow the vendor
to override the default values set for the various build
flags. $flags is a Dpkg::BuildFlags object.
