Lintian ReportsBETA


The Debian diff or native package contains a file ending in ~ or of the form .xxx.swp, which is normally either an Emacs or vim backup file or a backup file created by programs such as autoheader or debconf-updatepo. This usually causes no harm, but it's messy and bloats the size of the Debian diff to no useful purpose.

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 f5107b6. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check cruft.
