Psource-contains-prebuilt-java-object

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

The source tarball contains a prebuilt Java class file. 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 as it may be a DFSG violation.
