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

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

	 Vendor: Debian
	 Vendor-URL: http://www.debian.org/
	 Bugs: debbugs://bugs.debian.org

       If the vendor derives from another vendor, the file should document the
       relationship by listing the base distribution in the Parent field:

	 Parent: Debian

       The file should be named according to the vendor name.

       $dir = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_dir()
	   Returns the current dpkg origins directory name, where the vendor
	   files are stored.

       $fields = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_info($name)
	   Returns a Dpkg::Control object with the information parsed from the
	   corresponding vendor file in $Dpkg::CONFDIR/origins/. If $name is
	   omitted, it will use $Dpkg::CONFDIR/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

       $name = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_file($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
	   $Dpkg::CONFDIR/origins/default.  If that file doesn't exist, it
	   returns undef.

       $object = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_object($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.
