E doc-base-document-field-ends-in-whitespace

The Document field in a doc-base file should not end in whitespace. Versions of doc-base as recent as 0.8.5 cannot deal gracefully with such fields.

Also, Ddebhelper versions 5.0.57 or earlier may create files that end in whitespace when such files are installed.

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 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit ea05801. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check menus.
