Eembedded-library

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

The given ELF object appears to have been statically linked to a library. Doing this is strongly discouraged due to the extra work needed by the security team to fix all the extra embedded copies or trigger the package rebuilds, as appropriate.

If the package uses a modified version of the given library it is highly recommended to coordinate with the library's maintainer to include the changes on the system version of the library.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 4.13 for details.
