Wdistribution-and-changes-mismatch

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

The Distribution in the .changes file indicates that packages should be installed into one distribution (suite), but the distribution in the Changes field copied from debian/changelog indicates that a different distribution was intended.

This is an easy mistake to make when invoking "sbuild ... foo.dsc". Double-check the -d option if using sbuild in this way.

Refer to Bug#542747 and Bug#529281 for details.
