Tag versions

Wdebian-rules-is-symlink

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.113.26. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.108.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit a1e47cb. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/rules.

Visibility: warning

The file debian/rules is a symlink instead of a regular file. This is unnecessary and makes package checking and manipulation more difficult. If the rules file should be available in the source package under multiple names, make debian/rules the real file and the other names symlinks to it.

This problem may have prevented Lintian from performing other checks, leading to undetected changelog errors.
