Lintian Reports

P rules-requires-root-missing

All reports of rules-requires-root-missing for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The debian/control file is missing an explicit Rules-Requires-Root field.

Traditionally, Debian packages have required root privileges for some debian/rules target requiring a split between build and binary targets. This makes the builds slower due to the increased amount of invocations as well as the overhead of fakeroot itself.

Please specify (eg.) Rules-Requires-Root: no in the debian/control source stanza, but packagers should verify using diffoscope(1) that the binaries built with this field present are identical.

Refer to /usr/share/doc/dpkg-dev/rootless-builds.txt.gz, Debian Policy Manual section 4.9.2 (debian/rules and Rules-Requires-Root), and Debian Policy Manual section 5.6.31 (Rules-Requires-Root) for details.

Severity: pedantic

Check: debian/control

Emitted (non-overridden): 90, overridden: 0, total: 90

The package names link to the relevant maintainer page and the corresponding report for the source package. The links go to the full maintainer report page, which includes info and experimental tags and overridden tags, rather than the default page that shows only errors and warnings.
