Visibility: warning

The documentation directory for this package contains an empty file. This is often due to installing an upstream NEWS or README file without realizing it's empty and hence not useful.

Files in the examples subdirectory are excluded from this check, but there are some cases where empty files are legitimate parts of the documentation without being examples. In those cases, please add an override.

The following 48 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 230 times (in any Lintian version).

We found 41 overrides. The tag performed 82% of the time.
