Lintian ReportsBETA


The named field for an installation package in debian/control has the same value as the one inherited from the source paragraph.

In the interest of shorter and clearer files, you may wish to take advantage of the inheritance rules. This field is redundant.

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 ea05801. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/control/field/redundant.
