built-using-field-on-arch-all-package

The stanza for an installation package in debian/control declares a Built-Using field even though the package is declared as Architecture: all. That is incorrect.

The Built-Using field is only used architecture-specific packages. Please remove the Built-Using field from the indicated location.

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit c1c05b0. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/control/field/built-using.
