Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

E copyright-should-refer-to-common-license-file-for-lgpl

The strings "GNU Lesser General Public License", "GNU Library General Public License", or "LGPL" appear in the copyright file for this package, but the copyright file does not reference /usr/share/common-licenses as the location of the LGPL on Debian systems.

If the package uses some other license that just mentions the LGPL and that Lintian should detect as an exception, please file a Lintian bug. If the copyright file must mention the LGPL for reasons other than stating the license of the package, please add a Lintian override.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 12.5 (Copyright information) for details.
