duplicate-short-description

The listed binary packages all share the same short description, i.e. the first line of the Description field in debian/control.

Please add a word or two, in parentheses if needed, to describe to users what they are installing.

It is not okay to rely solely on package naming conventions to indicate what is inside.

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 debian/control/field/description/duplicate.
