We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.113.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 43a81d7. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check fields/description.

Visibility: warning

The extended description contains a "Homepage" pseudo-field following the old Developer's Reference recommendation. As of 1.14.6, dpkg now supports Homepage as a regular field in debian/control. This pseudo-field should be moved from the extended description to the fields for the relevant source or binary packages.

The following 10 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 10 times (in any Lintian version).

There were no overrides.
