Icapitalization-error-in-description

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.6. That is the most recent version we know about.

Lintian found a possible capitalization error in the package description. Lintian has a list of common capitalization errors, primarily of upstream projects, that it looks for. It does not have a dictionary like a spelling checker does.

This is a particularly picky check of capitalization in package descriptions, since they're very visible to end users, but it will have false positives for project names used in a context where they should be lowercase, such as package names or executable names.
