Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

The Files paragraph in the machine readable copyright file references a license for which no stand-alone License paragraph exists.

Sometimes this tag appears because of incorrect ordering. Stand-alone License paragraphs must appear after all Files paragraphs.
