Wbreaks-without-version

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.113.26. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.113.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 43a81d7. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check fields/package-relations.

Visibility: warning

This package declares a Breaks relationship with another package that has no version number. Normally, Breaks should be used to indicate an incompatibility with a specific version of another package, or with all versions predating a fix. If the two packages can never be installed at the same time, Conflicts should normally be used instead.

Note this tag can also be issued if a package has been split into two completely new ones. In this case, this package is missing a Replaces on the old package.
