Ah, it seems a test for this was indeed added in Lintian in the not too
distant past. That also explains why  shows "unused override" for many
of our packages for that tag.
Note that both live-installer and userdevfs are listed on the page and
*are* D-I packages.
live-installer also has a deb, and thus _should_ have a standards version.
I'll file a BR.
userdevfs only has a udeb, so that looks like a bug somewhere.
Ah, I see the reason. Current version in the archive uses XB-Package-Type
instead of XC-Package-Type. But that has already been corrected in SVN, so
should get resolved with the next upload.
Thanks for the reply Joerg. Guess I'll also drop all the no longer needed
overrides for our packages.
