P package-does-not-use-debhelper-or-cdbs

All reports of package-does-not-use-debhelper-or-cdbs for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

This package does not appear to use a build system helper such as debhelper or cdbs.

It is recommended that packages use such tools as they avoid a large number of common errors and tedious boilerplate as well as permit distribution-wide changes to packages and reduce the "bus factor" & barriers to entry from external contributors.

Refer to the debhelper(7) manual page, the dh(1) manual page, and https://build-common.alioth.debian.org/ for details.

Severity: pedantic

Check: debhelper
