dpkg programmers' manual

0.1 Abstract

This manual describes the technical aspects of creating Debian binary and source packages. It also documents the interface between dselect and its access method scripts. It does not deal with the Debian Project policy requirements, and it assumes familiarity with dpkg's functions from the system administrator's perspective.
