       Dpkg::Vendor - get access to some vendor specific information


       The files in /etc/dpkg/origins/ can provide information about various
       vendors who are providing Debian packages. Currently those files look
       like this:

         Vendor: Debian
         Bugs: debbugs://

       The file should be named according to the vendor name.


       $fields = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_info($name)
           Returns a Dpkg::Control object with the information parsed from the
           corresponding vendor file in /etc/dpkg/origins/. If $name is
           omitted, it will use /etc/dpkg/origins/default which is supposed to
           be a symlink to the vendor of the currently installed operating
           system. Returns undef if there's no file for the given vendor.

       $name = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_file($name)
           Check if there's a file for the given vendor and returns its name.

       $name = Dpkg::Vendor::get_current_vendor()
           Returns the name of the current vendor. If DEB_VENDOR is set, it
           uses that first, otherwise it falls back to parsing
           /etc/dpkg/origins/default.  If that file doesn't exist, it returns

       $object = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_object($name)
           Return the Dpkg::Vendor::* object of the corresponding vendor.  If
           $name is omitted, return the object of the current vendor.  If no
           vendor can be identified, then return the Dpkg::Vendor::Default

       Dpkg::Vendor::run_vendor_hook($hookid, @params)
           Run a hook implemented by the current vendor object.
