W duplicate-packaging-file

Some packaging files obtain different names when they are copied from source to installation packages. Debhelper sometimes adds *.Debian extensions to NEWS, README and TODO files. That can be confusing.

Debhelper's behavior also depends on the filename.

This source package contains both a file with the proper name and also a file with incorrect name. Please remove the file as indicated.

Please merge all relevant information into the surviving file.

Refer to and for details.
