Wexplicit-default-in-package-type

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.260. That is the most recent version we know about.

Having Package-Type: deb is the same as not having the field at all, so it makes the Packages file longer with no benefit. Policy also discourages it.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 5.6.28 for details.
