Visibility: info

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.

The following 259 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 299 times (in any Lintian version).

We found 28 overrides. The tag performed 91% of the time.
