package-uses-old-debhelper-compat-version

This package uses a debhelper compatibility level that is no longer recommended. Please consider using the recommended level.

For most packages, the best way to set the compatibility level is to specify debhelper-compat (= X) as a Build-Depends in debian/control. You can also use the debian/compat file or export DH_COMPAT in debian/rules.

If no level is selected debhelper defaults to level 1, which is deprecated.

For more information please consult:
