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
release tag in our Git
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.
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.
