Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.318. That is the most recent version we know about.

A file specified in the Files-Excluded field in debian/copyright exists in the source tree.

This might be a DFSG violation, the referenced files are probably not attributed in debian/copyright, or the upstream tarball was simply not repacked as intended. Alternatively, the field is simply out of date.

mk-origtargz(1) is typically responsible for removing such files. Support in git-buildpackage is being tracked in Bug#812721.
