Predundant-globbing-patterns

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.108.13. 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.

Please refer to Bug#905747 and https://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/copyright-format/1.0/ for details.
