Wglobbing-patterns-out-of-order

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

The Files sections in debian/copyright are out of order. The relative directory depth should increase from one section to the next. That is the general pattern of the specification, with * at the top.

When sections are in another order, some files may be associated with the wrong license.

Please reorder the sections.

Refer to Bug#905747 and https://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/copyright-format/1.0/ for details.
