incorrect-packaging-filename

Some packaging files obtain different names when they are copied from source to installation packages. Debhelper sometimes adds *.Debian extensions to NEWS, README and TODO files. That can be confusing.

Debhelper's behavior also depends on the filename.

This source package contains a file that debhelper will not find. The file will not be included in your installation packages. Important information, such as incompatibilties on upgrades, may not reach your users.

Please rename the file as indicated.

For more information please consult:

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 c1c05b0. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/filenames.
