I binary-control-field-duplicates-source

In debian/control, this field for a binary package duplicates the value inherited from the source package paragraph. This doesn't hurt anything, but you may want to take advantage of the inheritance and set the value in only one place. It prevents missing duplicate places that need to be fixed if the value ever changes.
