W spelling-error-in-changelog

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.

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit ea05801. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/changelog.

Visibility: warning

The following 212 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 377 times (in any Lintian version).

There were no overrides.
