unknown-file-in-debian-source

The source package contains a file in debian/source/ that Lintian does not know about. Currently the following files are recognized:

  • format
  • include-binaries
  • lintian-overrides
  • options
  • patch-header

Perhaps the name of one of the those files was accidentally mistyped.

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 ca97c3a. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/source-dir.
