Iextended-description-is-probably-too-short

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.318. That is the most recent version we know about.

The extended description (the lines after the first line of the "Description:" field) is only one or two lines long. The extended description should provide a user with enough information to decide whether they want to install this package, what it contains, and how it compares to similar packages. One or two lines is normally not enough to do this.

Please refer to Debian Developer's Reference section 6.2.1 and Debian Developer's Reference section 6.2.3 for details.
