Ppackage-does-not-use-debhelper-or-cdbs

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.3. That is the most recent version we know about.

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.

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

Visibility: pedantic

Check: debhelper
