DESCRIPTIONConfiguration 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
