Lintian ReportsBETA

dot-before-repack-count

The source version contains a repack count that is prefaced by a dot, like +dfsg.N.

For proper version sorting, please use +dfsgN instead.

Please note, however, that a version containing the dot +dfsg.N-1 (here with a Debian revision) should not change to +dfsgN-1 (without the dot) for the same upstream release. That is because 1.0+dfsgN-1 always appears less recent than the original 1.0+dfsg.1-1. Please consider the new format when upstream cuts the next release.

For more information please consult:

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 f5107b6. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check fields/version/repack/count.
