Eversion-substvar-for-external-package

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.6. That is the most recent version we know about.

The first package has a relation on the second package using a dpkg-control substitution variable to generate the versioned part of the relation. However the second package is not built from this source package. Usually this means there is a mistake or typo in the package name in this dependency.
