Lintian ReportsBETA


A Debian package that provides a /usr/share/doc/pkg directory must install a changelog file.

For native packages the best name is /usr/share/doc/pkg/changelog.gz.

For non-native packages the best name is /usr/share/doc/pkg/changelog.Debian.gz.

This tag may also be emitted when the changelog exists but does not otherwise resemble a Debian changelog.

For more information please consult:

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 ea05801. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/changelog.
