We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.113.0 release tag in our Git repository.

Visibility: warning

The listed packages from the same source circularly depend (or pre-depend) on each other. This makes it difficult for tools to properly handle install/upgrade sequences. Furthermore this complicates automated removal of unused packages.

If possible, consider removing or reducing one of the depends.

Note: This check is limited to packages created from the same source package. Full circular dependencies between binaries from different source packages is beyond the scope of Lintian.
