"Debian" is just fine for me. I do my packaging work for Debian and I
want it to be known as provided by Debian, and not Debian-packagers (is this
made to flatter ourselfves or make grepping easier?). It may be just a
matter of wording but here the difference matters for me.
Besides, I really don't understand the story with a keyword. What's the
goal? If you want to know if some META is provided by Debian, then:
egrep -r "^\# This META file is delivered by Debian for your
convenience\.$" **/META* METAS/*
