Tag versions

Wtypo-in-debhelper-override-target

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.113.26. 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 debhelper.

Visibility: warning

The listed target in debian/rules is a likely misspelling or it is missing an underscore ("_") between the override_dh, execute_after_dh etc. and the command name.

This can result in (for example) a override_dh_foo-style target silently not being executed by make.

Implementation detail: The typo is detected by using "Levenshtein edit distance" so if the typo involve several characters Lintian may not detect it.

The following 16 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 18 times (in any Lintian version).

There were no overrides.
