Lintian ReportsBETA


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

Two globbing patterns in the same Files section in debian/copyright match the same file.

This situation can occur when a narrow pattern should apply the same license as a broader pattern. Please create another Files section for the narrow pattern and place it below other patterns that compete for the same files.

Refer to Bug#905747 and for details.
