P source-contains-svn-control-dir

All reports of source-contains-svn-control-dir for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The upstream source contains an .svn directory. It was most likely included by accident since Subversion version control directories usually don't belong in releases. When packaging a Subversion snapshot, export from Subversion rather than checkout. If an upstream release tarball contains .svn directories, this should be reported as a bug to upstream since it can double the size of the tarball to no purpose.

Severity: pedantic

Check: cruft

Emitted (non-overridden): 1, overridden: 0, total: 1

The package names link to the relevant maintainer page and the corresponding report for the source package. The links go to the full maintainer report page, which includes info and experimental tags and overridden tags, rather than the default page that shows only errors and warnings.
