Wdebhelper-but-no-misc-depends

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.260. That is the most recent version we know about.

The source package uses debhelper, but it does not include ${misc:Depends} in the given binary package's debian/control entry. Any debhelper command may add dependencies to ${misc:Depends} that are required for the work that it does, so recommended best practice is to always add ${misc:Depends} to the dependencies of each binary package if debhelper is in use.

Refer to the debhelper(7) manual page for details.
