Visibility: warning

One of the targets in the debian/rules file for this package calls debhelper programs in an odd order. Normally, dh_makeshlibs should be run before dh_shlibdeps or dh_installdeb, and dh_shlibdeps should be run before dh_gencontrol. dh_builddeb should be the last debhelper action when building the package, after any of the other programs mentioned. Calling these programs in the wrong order may cause incorrect or missing package files and metadata.

The following 2 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 2 times (in any Lintian version).

There were no overrides.
