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
release tag in our Git
You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 43a81d7. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/patches.
This package build-depends on a patch system such as dpatch or
quilt, but there is no
debian/README.source file. This file is
recommended for any package where
dpkg-source -x does not result
in the preferred form for making modifications to the package.
If you are using quilt and the package needs no other special handling
instructions, you may want to add a
/usr/share/doc/quilt/README.source. Similarly, you
can refer to
/usr/share/doc/dpatch/README.source.gz for dpatch.
