Pdebian-control-has-unusual-field-spacing

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.264. That is the most recent version we know about.

The field on this line of debian/control has whitespace other than a single space after the colon. This is explicitly permitted in the syntax of Debian control files, but as Policy says, it is conventional to put a single space after the colon.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 5.1 for details.
