Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.6. That is the most recent version we know about.

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.

Please refer to the jdupes(1) manual page for details.
