Epatch-modifying-debian-files

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

A patch stored in debian/patches/ modifies or creates files in the debian folder, but that folder is already under the maintainer's exclusive control.

It may be more appropriate to patch or create files in the upstream directory hierarchy, but often it is easier to place a copy in the debian folder.
