Tag versions

Wuseless-autoreconf-build-depends

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.30. 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 1bc5241. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debhelper.

Visibility: warning

Since compatibility level 10, debhelper enables the autoreconf sequence by default.

It is therefore not necessary to specify build-dependencies on dh-autoreconf or autotools-dev and they can be removed.

The following 146 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 170 times (in any Lintian version).

We found 2 overrides. The tag performed 99% of the time.
