Emawk-script-but-no-mawk-dep

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

Packages that use mawk scripts must depend on the mawk package. If they don't need mawk-specific features, and can just as easily work with gawk, then they should be awk scripts instead.

In some cases a weaker relationship, such as Suggests or Recommends, will be more appropriate.
