  cme modify dpkg source 'format="(3.0) quilt"'
  # likewise with an application that accepts file override
  cme modify dpkg-copyright 'Comment="Modified with cme"'

DESCRIPTION

Modify a configuration file with the values passed on the command line. These command must follow the syntax defined in Config::Model::Loader (which is similar to the output of cme dump command)

   cme modify multistrap my_mstrap.conf sections:base source="http://ftp.fr.debian.org"
Some application like dpkg-copyright allows you to override the configuration file name. You must then use "-file" option:
   cme modify dpkg-copyright -file ubuntu/copyright 'Comment="Silly example"

Common options

See "Global Options" in cme.
