Tag versions

Wpackage-installs-deprecated-upstart-configuration

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.113.26. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.113.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 43a81d7. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check files/init.

Visibility: warning

The package installs files into the /etc/init directory which is used by Upstart, a replacement for the /sbin/init daemon which handles starting of tasks and services during boot, etc.

However, Upstart was removed in Debian "stretch" and these files are thus no longer useful and should be removed.

The following 8 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 9 times (in any Lintian version).

There were no overrides.
