Wtemplate-uses-unsplit-choices

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.55. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.108.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit a1e47cb. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/debconf.

Visibility: warning

The use of _Choices in templates is deprecated. A _Choices field must be translated as a single string.

Using __Choices allows each choice to be translated separately, easing translation and is therefore recommended.

Instead of simply replacing all occurrences of "_Choices" by "__Choices", apply the method described in po-debconf(7) under "SPLITTING CHOICES LIST", to avoid breaking existing translations.

If in doubt, please ask for help on the debian-i18n mailing list.
