Lintian ReportsBETA


The named field in the debian/control file lists multiple package relationships when one would be sufficient.

The less restrictive declaration can be removed. The tools dpkg-source and dpkg-gencontrol do that automatically, so it does not affect the package generated from this source.

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit ca97c3a. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/control/field/relation.

Visibility: pedantic
