Lintian Reports

E source-includes-file-in-files-excluded

All reports of source-includes-file-in-files-excluded for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

A file specified in the Files-Excluded field in debian/copyright exists in the source tree.

This might be a DFSG violation, the referenced files are probably not attributed in debian/copyright, or the upstream tarball was simply not repacked as intended. Alternatively, the field is simply out of date.

mk-origtargz(1) is typically responsible for removing such files. Support in git-buildpackage is being tracked in #812721.

Severity: serious, Certainty: possible

Check: debian/copyright, Type: source, binary
