Tag versions

Einfo-document-missing-dir-section

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.113.26. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.108.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit a1e47cb. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check documentation/texinfo.

Visibility: error

This info document has no INFO-DIR-SECTION line. install-info will be unable to determine the section into which this info page should be put. The best solution is to add a line like:

@dircategory Software development

to the texinfo source so that the generated info file will contain a section. See /usr/share/info/dir for sections to choose from. You will have to ensure that the build process builds new info files rather than using ones built by upstream.

The following 6 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 14 times (in any Lintian version).

There were no overrides.
