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 8053610. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check menu-format.

Visibility: warning

The menu item has a line that specifies an unknown section or uses a section that is intended only as a menu root, not as a section that applications should use directly. Check the spelling of the section and check the section against the list in the menu policy. (The menu sections changed as of June of 2007.)
