Iupstream-file-without-utf8-name

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.260. That is the most recent version we know about.

The file name in the upstream source tree is not valid UTF-8. There is probably not much a maintainer can do other than ask upstream to package the sources differently.

Repacking may by an option, but it often has other drawbacks, such as the loss of a cryptographic chain of custody.

Unlike other file names in Lintian, which are printed in UTF-8, the attached reference shows the bytes used by the file system. Unprintable characters may have been replaced.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.10 for details.
