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 8053610. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check documentation/texinfo.

Visibility: warning

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/.
