Wessential-no-not-needed

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

Having "Essential: no" is the same as not having the field at all, so it just makes the Packages file longer with no benefit.

Please refer to Debian Policy Manual section 5.6.9 for details.
