unstripped-static-library

The package installs an unstripped static library.

Please note, that static libraries have to be stripped with the --strip-debug option. You will probably also want to use --remove-section=.comment --remove-section=.note to avoid the static-library-has-unneeded-section tag.

dh_strip (after debhelper/9.20150811) will do this automatically for you.

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 2.112.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 02df726. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check libraries/static.
