Visibility: warning

This package specifies a binary dependency on a "toolchain" package such as debhelper or cdbs. This is likely to be a mistake; these packages are typically specified as build-dependencies instead.

If the package intentionally requires such a dependency, please add a Lintian override with a justifying remark.

The following 21 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 23 times (in any Lintian version).
