git-patches-not-exported

The source package contains files in debian/source/git-patches. These patches should have been exported via the quilt-patches-deb-export-hook of gitpkg.

It does not look like the patches were exported for this source package.

You will see this tag when you generate a source package without gitpkg (or with a misconfigured version) unless the patches were exported manually.

See the above mentioned hook file (in /usr/share/gitpkg/hooks) for information on how to export patches manually.

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 ea05801. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/source-dir.
