Lintian Reports

W depends-on-old-emacs

All reports of depends-on-old-emacs for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The package lists an old version of Emacs as its first dependency. It should probably be updated to support the current version of Emacs in the archive and then list that version first in the list of Emacs flavors it supports.

If the package intentionally only supports older versions of Emacs (if, for example, it was included with later versions of Emacs), add a Lintian override.

Severity: normal, Certainty: possible

Check: fields, Type: binary, udeb, source
