P duplicate-files

This tag is experimental.

The package ships the two (or more) files with the exact same contents.

Duplicates can often be replaced with symlinks by running:

jdupes -rl debian/${binary}/usr

... after they are installed, eg. in override_dh_link. In addition, please consider reporting this upstream.

Note: empty files are exempt from this check.

Refer to the jdupes(1) manual page for details.

Severity: pedantic
