macos-resource-fork-file-in-package

There is a file in the package with a name starting with ._, the file name pattern used by Mac OS X to store resource forks in non-native file systems. 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 ea05801. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check foreign-operating-systems.
