Lintian ReportsBETA

description-contains-homepage

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 tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.111.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit ffc17eb. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check fields/description.
