Lintian ReportsBETA

I dpatch-missing-description

dpatch files should carry a description of the included patch. Description lines start with "## DP:".

As well as a description of the purpose and function of the patch, the description should ideally contain author information, a URL for the bug report (if any), Debian or upstream bugs fixed by it, upstream status, the Debian version and date the patch was first included, and any other information that would be useful if someone were investigating the patch and underlying problem. Please consider using the DEP 3 format for this information.

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 2.112.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 131c0f4. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/patches/dpatch.
