We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.113.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 43a81d7. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debhelper.

Visibility: warning

The debhelper tools from autotools-dev has been replaced by the tool dh_update_autotools_config, which was available in debhelper (>= 9.20160114)

The dh_update_autotools_config is run by default via the dh command sequencer. If you are using dh, you can probably just remove the uses of the tooling from autotools-dev without doing any further changes.

If you use the "classic" debhelper style, then please replace all calls to dh_autotools-dev_updateconfig with dh_update_autotools_config. The calls to dh_autotools-dev_restoreconfig are replaced by dh_clean, so they can most likely just be removed without any further changes.
