Wdebian-tests-control-autodep8-is-obsolete

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.24. That is the most recent version we know about.

The specified autopkgtest control file is considered obsolete.

Before autodep8 version 0.17 and autopkgtest version 5.7 if a maintainer wished to add tests to the set of tests generated by autodep8 they provided those tests in a file named debian/tests/control.autodep8.

It is now prefered to declare the additional tests in the regular debian/tests/control file so that dpkg-source can pick up the test dependencies.

When configured to run autodep8 tests, autopkgtest will run the additional tests and the autodep8 tests when debian/control has the proper Testsuite: autopkgtest-* in the source headers.

Please merge the specified file into debian/tests/control.

Please refer to the autodep8(1) manual page for details.

Visibility: warning

Check: testsuite
