Tag versions

Wformat-3.0-but-debian-changes-patch

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.113.26. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.108.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit a1e47cb. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/patches/quilt.

Visibility: warning

This package declares source format 3.0 (quilt), but the Debian .debian.tar.gz file contains a debian-changes-VERSION patch, which represents direct changes to files outside of the debian directory. This often indicates accidental changes that weren't meant to be in the package or changes that were supposed to be separated out into a patch.

If this is intentional, you may wish to consider adding single-debian-patch to debian/source/options, and/or a patch header to debian/source/patch-header explaining why this is done.

The following 5 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 5 times (in any Lintian version).

There were no overrides.
