info-document-missing-dir-entry

This info document has no directory entry. This is text between START-INFO-DIR-ENTRY and END-INFO-DIR-ENTRY lines which is copied into the dir file in /usr/share/info by install-info. The best solution is to add lines like:

@dircategory Software development @direntry * foo: (foo). Foo creator and editor @end direntry

to the texinfo source so that the generated info file will contain an appropriate entry. You will have to ensure that the build process builds new info files rather than using ones built by upstream.

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 3410a22. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check documentation/texinfo.
