Wdbg-package-missing-depends

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.232. That is the most recent version we know about.

The given binary package has a name of the form of "X-dbg", indicating it contains detached debugging symbols for the package X. If so, it should depend on the corresponding package, generally with (= ${binary:Version}) since the debugging symbols are only useful with the binaries created by the same build.

Note that the package being depended upon cannot be "Architecture: all".

If this package provides debugging symbols for multiple other packages, it should normally depend on all of those packages as alternatives. In other words, pkga (= ${binary:Version}) | pkgb (= ${binary:Version}) and so forth.
