debian-copyright-is-symlink

The file debian/copyright is a symlink instead of a regular file. This makes package checking and manipulation more difficult.

This problem may have prevented Lintian from performing other checks.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.
