Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.234. That is the most recent version we know about.

Binary packages do not need to contain the instructions for building and installing the package as this info is not needed by package users. If the info contained is important for configuration perhaps it could be summarized in README.Debian, otherwise an override may be added.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 12.3 for details.
