Lintian ReportsBETA

vcs-field-not-canonical

The VCS-* field contains an uncanonical URI. Please update to use the current canonical URI instead. This reduces the network bandwidth used and makes debcheckout work independent of the port forwarding and redirections properly working.

Note that this check is based on a list of known URIs. Lintian did not send an HTTP request to the URI to test this.

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 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit fd97859. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check fields/vcs.
