Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

E debian-changelog-file-missing-or-wrong-name

Each Debian package (which provides a /usr/share/doc/pkg directory) must install a Debian changelog file in /usr/share/doc/pkg/changelog.Debian.gz

A common error is to name the Debian changelog like an upstream changelog (/usr/share/doc/pkg/changelog.gz); therefore, Lintian will apply further checks to such a file if it exists even after issuing this error.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 12.7 (Changelog files and release notes) for details.

Severity: error
