Lintian Reports

W intra-source-package-circular-dependency

All reports of intra-source-package-circular-dependency for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The listed packages from the same source circularly depend (or pre-depend) on each other. This makes it difficult for tools to properly handle install/upgrade sequences. Furthermore this complicates automated removal of unused packages.

If possible, consider removing or reducing one of the depends.

Note: This check is limited to packages created from the same source package. Full circular dependencies between binaries from different source packages is beyond the scope of Lintian.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 7.2 (Binary Dependencies - Depends, Recommends, Suggests, Enhances, Pre-Depends) for details.

Severity: warning

Check: group-checks

This tag has not been emitted in any package tested by Lintian.
