Iunnecessary-source-date-epoch-assignment

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.234. That is the most recent version we know about.

There is an assignment to a SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH variable in the debian/rules file.

As of dpkg 1.18.8, this is no longer necessary as dpkg exports this variable if it is not already set. However, you can also include /usr/share/dpkg/pkg-info.mk or /usr/share/dpkg/default.mk to ensure it is exported.

Refer to https://reproducible-builds.org/specs/source-date-epoch/ for details.
