Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.264. That is the most recent version we know about.

The package ships a watch file although it is a Debian native package. DEHS does not process watch files in native packages based on the reasoning that native packages do not have upstreams to check for new releases.

Refer to https://wiki.debian.org/DEHS for details.
