Lintian ReportsBETA

missing-conffile

The conffiles control file lists this path, but the path does not appear to exist in the package. Lintian may also emit this tag when the file exists, but the canonical name is used in the "conffiles" control file (e.g. if a parent segment are symlinks).

Note that dpkg and Lintian strips all whitespace from the right hand side of each line. Thus it is not possible for a file ending with trailing whitespace to be marked as a conffile.

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 c1c05b0. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check conffiles.
