Winfo-document-missing-image-file

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

This info document contains an "[image]" but the image file it specifies is missing. Texinfo @image{} becomes

[image src="filename.png"]

in the .info. Emacs 22 and up info mode can display this in a GUI if filename.png is in /usr/share/info or if the src gives a path to the file elsewhere.

If you put an image file in /usr/share/info then please name it like the document so as to avoid name clashes. Eg. foo.info might call an image foo-example1.png. If upstream does not do this already then it may be easier to sed the src="" to a path elsewhere, perhaps to share with an HTML rendition under say /usr/share/doc/foo/html/.
