   The "Policy 3.7.3" release.
   * checks/binaries:
     + [HE] Fix RegEx to re-enable 'binary-in-etc' and
            'arch-dependent-file-in-usr-share' checks. (Closes: #452336)
     + [HE] When checking that a lib is linked against libc, search for
            libc.so, not any library beginning with libc. Thanks for
            the bug and patch to Ruben Porras <nahoo82@gmail.com>. (Closes:
     + [RA] Ignore the gf suffix from the gfortran migration when checking
       whether the package name matches the SONAME.  Thanks, Kevin
       B. McCarty.  (Closes: #448207)
   * checks/changelog-file{.desc,}:
     + [RA] Check that the latest changelog entry has a later version than
       the previous entry.  Thanks, Thijs Kinkhorst.  (Closes: #449257)
   * checks/common_data.pm:
     + [RA] Add Dm-Upload-Allowed as a control field.  (Closes: #453779)
   * checks/control-file{.desc,}:
     + [RA] Diagnose stronger dependencies that imply weaker dependencies,
       such as the same dependency in both Depends and Recommends or
       Recommends and Suggests.  Thanks, Joerg Jaspert.  (Closes: #453302)
     + [RA] Upgrade no-section-field-for-source to warning at the request
       of Joerg Jaspert.
   * checks/control-files:
     + [RA] Add symbols as a known control file for debs and udebs.
   * checks/copyright-file:
     + [HE] Check that encoding of copyright file is UTF-8. Patch by
            gregor herrmann <gregor+debian@comodo.priv.at>. (Closes: #451689)
     + [HE] Add warning copyright-contains-dh_make-todo-boilerplate
            if the maintainer left the dh_make boilerplate in the
            copyright file. Based on patch by Cyril Brulebois
            <cyril.brulebois@enst-bretagne.fr>. (Closes: #448677)
     + [RA] Check for the complete GFDL included in the copyright file and
       expand copyright-file-contains-full-gpl-license to look for GPL v3
       references.  Also check for correct references to common-licenses
       for the GFDL and LGPL.
   * checks/deb-format:
     + [HE] Remove, not needed any more. (Closes: #447257)
   * checks/debconf:
     + [HE] Explicitly allow the phrase "no longer" in boolean debconf
       questions. (Closes: #447718)
   * checks/description.desc:
     + [RA] Upgrade the legacy Homepage tag to a warning.
   * checks/fields:
     + [HE] Add 'doc-package-should-be-section-doc',
            'perl-package-should-be-section-perl'. Ideas shamelessy
            stolen from linda. (Closes: #452839)
     + [RA] Allow Python dependencies in Build-Depends when using another
       variant for calling Python in the clean target.  Thanks, Bernd
       Zeimetz.  (Closes: #444642)
   * checks/files{.desc,}:
     + [HE,RA] Add 'package-contains-empty-directory' check, but ignore
       dirs in /var and /etc and handle /usr/lib/perl5 and /usr/share/perl5
       directories separately with a lower priority level since they're
       very common.  (Closes: #452316, #357838)
     + [HE] Add checks for game packages that contain no game executables
            (package-section-games-but-contains-no-game) or that contain
            anything in usr/bin at all, which is usually a mistake.
            (package-section-games-but-contains-no-game). (Closes: #451668)
     + [RA] Downgrade symlink-should-be-relative to a warning since it's a
       Policy should.  Thanks, Thijs Kinkhorst.  (Closes: #454239)
   * checks/lintian.desc:
     + [RA] Add critical as a recognized urgency.
   * checks/patch-systems:
     + [HE] Add complete new check script, intended to check for usual
            problems when using patch systems. Start with three
            checks for common dpatch problems. Idea loosely based on
            patch by Carl Fürstenberg <azatoth@gmail.com>. (Closes: #437959)
   * checks/po-debconf.desc:
     + [RA] not-using-po-debconf is now an error per Policy section 3.9.1.
   * checks/rules:
     + [HE] Implement 'binary-arch-rules-but-pkg-is-arch-indep', checking
            for rules in binary-arch when the package is arch: all.
            (Closes: #409109, #119097)
     + [HE] Implement 'desktop-file-but-no-dh_desktop-call', checking for
            missing dh_desktop calls when .desktop files are installed in
            a debhelperized package. (Closes: #409138)
   * checks/scripts:
     + [HE] Allow packages to drop snippets into /etc/csh/login.d
            without a dependency on csh. Files there should also
            be allowed to have csh in the shebang line. (Closes: #453417)
     + [HE] Allow packages to drop snippets into /etc/fish.d/ without
            a dependecy on fish. (Closes: #453416)
     + [RA] Remove possible-non-posix-code-in-maintainer-script entirely.
       Debian Policy now allows local and test -a/-o specifically and this
       is pointless portability.
   * checks/standards-version:
     + [RA] 3.7.3 is now the current Standards-Version and anything older
       than 3.6.2 is ancient.
   * debian/control:
     + [TK] Add Vcs-* fields to point to Lintian's repository.
     + [RA] Update standards version to 3.7.3.
   * debian/dirs:
     + [RA] Stop creating empty /usr/share/lintian/{overrides,info}
       directories.  The latter is no longer used and the former is shipped
       with packages that include overrides.
   * frontend/lintian:
     + [RA] Add critical as a recognized urgency.
     + [RA] Diagnose malformed override entries; don't just ignore them.
     + [RA] Fix some odd formatting.
     + [RA] Display a summary of overridden tags as an N: output line.
       Requested by Steve McIntyre.  (Closes: #452804)
   * man/lintian.1:
     + [RA] Be clearer about what files lintian takes as arguments; in
       particular, mention that source packages are checked by providing
       the .dsc file as an argument.  (Closes: #441636)
     + [RA] Fix a slight spacing problem with the --color flag.
     + [RA] Remove mention of unused /usr/share/lintian/info directory.
   * lib/DebVersions.pm:
     + [RA] Remove.  This isn't used by anything and would produce
       incorrect results (it doesn't understand ~), and Dep.pm provides
       version comparison routines that use dpkg.
   * lib/Tags.pm:
     + [RA] Keep statistics on overrides by severity.
   * reporting/html_reports:
     + [RA] Change the layout of the per-maintainer lintian pages.  Now,
       each report will be in /reports/maintainer/<email>.html where
       <email> is the maintainer's e-mail address with unsafe characters
       replaced by _.  This should allow better links from the QA pages.
       Thanks, Stefano Zacchiroli.
   * unpack/list-srcpkg:
     + [RA] Escape ; and newline characters in all package fields before
       writing them to the index (uncovered when someone accidentally
       appended a package description to Standards-Version).
