Wvcs-field-uses-not-recommended-uri-format

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.319. That is the most recent version we know about.

The VCS-* field uses a URI which doesn't match the recommended format, but still looks valid. Examples for not recommended URI formats are protocols that require authentication (like SSH). Instead where possible you should provide a URI that is accessible for everyone without authentication.

This renders debcheckout(1) unusable in these cases.
