This control file will be installed into the DEBIAN directory.
In v3 compatibility mode and higher, all files in the etc/ directory in a
package will automatically be flagged as conffiles by this program, so
there is no need to list them manually here.
Lines in this file correspond to dpkg-maintscript-helper(1) commands and
parameters. Any shell metacharacters will be escaped, so arbitrary shell
code cannot be inserted here. For example, a line such as "mv_conffile
/etc/oldconffile /etc/newconffile" will insert maintainer script snippets
into all maintainer scripts sufficient to move that conffile.
This program is a part of debhelper.
