dpkg triggers feature

Registered by Ian Jackson on 2007-05-01

A dpkg trigger is a facility that allows events caused by one package
but of interest to another package to be recorded and aggregated, and
processed later by the interested package. This feature simplifies
various registration and system-update tasks and reduces duplication
of processing.

(NB: Triggers are intended for events that occur during package
installation, not events that occur in general operation.)
