Lintian ReportsBETA


This package appears to be the first packaging of a new upstream software package (there is only one changelog entry and the Debian revision is 1), but it does not close any bugs. The initial upload of a new package should close the corresponding ITP bug for that package.

This warning can be ignored if the package is not intended for Debian or if it is a split of an existing Debian package.

For more information please consult:

  • New packages (Section 5.1) in the Debian Developer's Reference

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 f5107b6. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/changelog.
