       Dpkg::Vendor::Default - default vendor object

       A vendor object is used to provide vendor specific behaviour in various places. This is
       the default object used in case there's none for the current vendor or in case the vendor
       could not be identified (see Dpkg::Vendor documentation).

       It provides some hooks that are called by various dpkg-* tools.	If you need a new hook,
       please file a bug against dpkg-dev and explain your need. Note that the hook API has no
       guaranty to be stable over an extended period. If you run an important distribution that
       makes use of vendor hooks, you'd better submit them for integration so that we avoid
       breaking your code.

       $vendor_obj = Dpkg::Vendor::Default->new()
	   Creates the default vendor object. Can be inherited by all vendor objects if they
	   don't need any specific initialization at object creation time.

       $vendor_obj->run_hook($id, @params)
	   Run the corresponding hook. The parameters are hook-specific. The supported hooks are:

	   before-source-build ($srcpkg)
		   The first parameter is a Dpkg::Source::Package object. The hook is called just
		   before the execution of $srcpkg->build().

	   keyrings ()
		   The hook is called when dpkg-source is checking a signature on a source
		   package. It takes no parameters, but returns a (possibly empty) list of
		   vendor-specific keyrings.

	   register-custom-fields ()
		   The hook is called in Dpkg::Control::Fields to register custom fields.  You
		   should return a list of arrays. Each array is an operation to perform.  The
		   first item is the name of the operation and corresponds to a field_* function
		   provided by Dpkg::Control::Fields. The remaining fields are the parameters
		   that are passed unchanged to the corresponding function.

		   Known operations are "register", "insert_after" and "insert_before".

	   post-process-changelog-entry ($fields)
		   The hook is called in Dpkg::Changelog to post-process a Dpkg::Changelog::Entry
		   after it has been created and filled with the appropriate values.

	   update-buildflags ($flags)
		   The hook is called in Dpkg::BuildFlags to allow the vendor to override the
		   default values set for the various build flags. $flags is a Dpkg::BuildFlags
		   object.				    2012-04-17			 Dpkg::Vendor::Default(3)
