Lintian ReportsBETA


The sources attempt to declare a Rules-Requires-Root field but the field name is mispelled.

This tag was necessary because Debian uses a non-standard grammar. The field should be named Rules-Require-Root (with the verb in the singular).

For now, please rename the field to Rules-Requires-Root.

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 8ab6976. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/control/field/rules-requires-root.

Visibility: warning
