Erepeated-trigger-name

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.264. That is the most recent version we know about.

The package repeats the same trigger. There should be no reason to do this and it may lead to confusing results or errors.

For the same "base" type of trigger (e.g. two interest-type triggers) the last declaration will be the effective one.

This tag is also triggered if the package has an activate trigger for something on which it also declares an interest. The only (but rather unlikely) reason to do this is if another package also declares an interest and this package needs to activate that other package. If the package is using it for this exact purpose, then please use a Lintian override to state this.

Please remove any duplicate definitions.

Refer to the deb-triggers(5) manual page and Bug#698723 for details.
