macos-ds-store-file-in-package

There is a file in the package named .DS_Store or .DS_Store.gz, the file name used by Mac OS X to store folder attributes. Such files are generally useless in Debian packages and were usually accidentally included by copying complete directories from the source tarball.

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 fd97859. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check foreign-operating-systems.
