spurious-fields-in-upstream-signature

The packaging includes a detached upstream signature file that contains spurious fields like Comment: or Version:. They are sometimes added by gpg --enarmor, especially if you have an older version. Modern versions only add a Comment: field.

Please generate the signature with gpg --armor --detach-sig using a modern version instead.

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 3410a22. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check upstream-signature.
