Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

The latest entry in NEWS.Debian has an unusual distribution name. This field is ignored by the archive software, so its value doesn't truly matter, but it may be confusing to users reading the entry if the distribution doesn't match the distribution for the same entry in the Debian changelog file.

Visibility: warning

Check: debian/changelog
