Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.234. That is the most recent version we know about.

The given control file uses CRLF as line terminator instead of the traditional UNIX LF terminator. Since some tools were only designed with the UNIX end-of-line terminators in mind, it is possible that they misbehave or lead to unexpected results.

Running the following command against the given file removes any CR character in the file:

sed -i 's/\r//g' path/to/file

Visibility: error

Check: debian/line-separators
