Idebian-news-entry-uses-asterisk

Tag versions

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

The latest entry in NEWS.Debian appears to use asterisks to present changes in a bulleted list, similar to the normal changelog syntax. The Debian Developer's Reference recommends using regular paragraphs in NEWS.Debian rather than a bulleted list.

Refer to Debian Developer's Reference section 6.3.4 for details.
