Visibility: warning

There is a file in the package named Thumbs.db or Thumbs.db.gz, which is normally a Windows image thumbnail database. Such databases are generally useless in Debian packages and were usually accidentally included by copying complete directories from the source tarball.

The following 2 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 2 times (in any Lintian version).

There were no overrides.
