A subset of the reports of debian-rules-contains-unnecessary-get-orig-source-target for the archive. Unfortunately the full list is too long, so only 1024 instances are listed on this page. At most 3 tags are shown per package. If you need the full list of tags, please download the lintian.log.gz file and extract the data you need.
The extended description of this tag is:
This package's debian/rules file contains a get-orig-source target that appears to be unnecessary. For example, the package might simply contain a single call to uscan(1).
Such calls are not ideal; maintainers should be able to call uscan with their own choice of options and they additionally encourage the proliferation of boilerplate code across the archive.
Since Debian Policy 4.1.4, packages are encouraged to migrate to uscan and a Files-Excluded header in the debian/copyright file.
Refer to the uscan(1) manual page for details.
Severity: wishlist, Certainty: possible
Check: rules, Type: source
