Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

Lintian found a spelling error in the latest entry of the Debian changelog. Lintian has a list of common misspellings that it looks for. It does not have a dictionary like a spelling checker does.

When writing a changelog entry for a spelling fix that includes the misspelling, ensure the word "spelling" is on the same line as the misspelled word to avoid triggering this warning.
