source-contains-prebuilt-flash-project

The source tarball contains a prebuilt file in the Shockwave Flash project (FLA) format. These are often included by mistake when developers generate a tarball without cleaning the source directory first.

If there is no sign this was intended, consider reporting it as an upstream bug.

If the Flash file is not meant to be modified directly, please make sure the package includes the source for the file and that the packaging rebuilds it.

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 ea05801. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check files/source-missing.
