Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.262. That is the most recent version we know about.

The package contains a special file (e.g., a device file). This is forbidden by current policy. If your program needs this device, you should create it by calling makedev from the postinst script.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.6 for details.
