Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.260. That is the most recent version we know about.

Debian revisions should be stripped from versions in symbols files. Not doing so leads to dependencies unsatisfiable by backports (1.0-1~bpo << 1.0-1 while 1.0-1~bpo >= 1.0). If the Debian revision can't be stripped because the symbol really appeared between two specific Debian revisions, you should postfix the version with a single "~" (example: 1.0-3~ if the symbol appeared in 1.0-3).

This problem normally means that the symbols were added automatically by dpkg-gensymbols. dpkg-gensymbols uses the full version number for the dependency associated to any new symbol that it detects. The maintainer must update the debian/<package>.symbols file by adding the new symbols with the corresponding upstream version.
