Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

E copyright-should-refer-to-common-license-file-for-apache-2

The strings "Apache License, Version" or "Apache-2" appear in the copyright file for this package, but the copyright file does not reference /usr/share/common-licenses as the location of the Apache-2 on Debian systems.

If the package uses some other license that just mentions the Apache-2 and that Lintian should detect as an exception, please file a Lintian bug. If the copyright file must mention the Apache-2 for reasons other than stating the license of the package, please add a Lintian override.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 12.5 (Copyright information) for details.
