Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

E needlessly-depends-on-awk

The package seems to declare a relation on awk. awk is a virtual package, but it is special since it's de facto essential. If you don't need to depend on a specific version of awk (which wouldn't work anyway, as dpkg doesn't support versioned provides), you should remove the dependency on awk.
