Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

I debian-news-entry-uses-asterisk

The latest entry in NEWS.Debian appears to use asterisks to present changes in a bulleted list, similar to the normal changelog syntax. The Debian Developer's Reference recommends using regular paragraphs in NEWS.Debian rather than a bulleted list.

Refer to Debian Developer's Reference section 6.3.4 (Common errors in changelog entries) for details.
