W virtual-package-depends-without-real-package-depends

All reports of virtual-package-depends-without-real-package-depends for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The package declares a depends on a virtual package without listing a real package as an alternative first.

If this package could ever be a build dependency, it should list a real package as the first alternative to any virtual package in its Depends. Otherwise, the build daemons will not be able to provide a consistent build environment.

If it will never be a build dependency, this isn't necessary, but you may want to consider doing so anyway if there is a real package providing that virtual package that most users will want to use.

Severity: normal, Certainty: possible

Check: fields/package-relations, Type: binary, udeb, source

Emitted (non-overridden): 18, overridden: 6, total: 24

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.
