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
release tag in our Git
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.
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
debian/source/options, and/or a patch
debian/source/patch-header explaining why this is done.
