Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

E malformed-changes-file

There is no "Format" field in your .changes file. This probably indicates some serious problem with the file. Perhaps it's not actually a changes file, or it's not in the proper format, or it's PGP-signed twice.

Since Lintian was unable to parse this .changes file, any further checks on it were skipped.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 5.5 (Debian changes files – .changes) for details.
