Visibility: warning

The packaging file is marked executable. For control, changelog and copyright there is no reason for them to be executable.

This tag is also emitted if a debhelper file is marked executable without using compat level 9, since debhelper does not execute them at lower compat levels.

The following 3 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 9 times (in any Lintian version).

There were no overrides.
