Lintian Reports

W symbols-declares-dependency-on-other-package

All reports of symbols-declares-dependency-on-other-package for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

This package declares in its symbols control file a dependency on some other package (and not one listed in the Provides of this package).

Packages should normally only list in their symbols control file the shared libraries included in that package, and therefore the dependencies listed there should normally be satisfied by either the package itself or one of its Provides.

In unusual circumstances where it's necessary to declare more complex dependencies in the symbols control file, please add a Lintian override for this warning.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 8.6 (Dependencies between the library and other packages) for details.

Severity: warning

Check: shared-libs

Emitted (non-overridden): 0, overridden: 3, total: 3

The package names link to the relevant maintainer page and the corresponding report for the source package. The links go to the full maintainer report page, which includes info and experimental tags and overridden tags, rather than the default page that shows only errors and warnings.
