generated-file

This file contains a common marker for generated files.

Some examples are:

  • DO NOT EDIT BY HAND
  • file was autogenerated

In general, Debian likes to ship only true source files. Please consider asking upstream to generate the file during the build process instead.

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit ca97c3a. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check files/generated.

This is a classification. There is no issue with your package.
