I capitalization-error-in-description

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 tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.162. 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 fields/description.
