P uses-debhelper-compat-file

All reports of uses-debhelper-compat-file for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

This package uses a debian/compat file to denote the required debhelper compatibility number.

However, debhelper has replaced debian/compat with the debhelper-compat virtual package for most circumstances.

Packages not using an experimental or beta compatibility level should Build-Depend on the debhelper-compat virtual package, for example:

     Build-Depends: debhelper-compat (= 12)

Refer to the debhelper(7) manual page for details.

Severity: pedantic

Check: debhelper
