Re: Bug#479248: does not install lintian overrides

don't invent code which might be duplicated later in debhelper.  Would

BTW, I think using dh_lintian seems to need a versioned dependency from
debhelper 6.x?  Or if you have quick access to a stable system running
debhelper 5.x, could you please verify the existence of dh_lintian?

It's not available in stable lintian.

Well, not in lintian - but in debhelper.  I verified debhelper changelog
which says:

debhelper (6.0.7) unstable; urgency=low

  * dh_lintian: Finally added this since linda is gone and there's only
    lintian to worry about supporting. Closes: #109642, #166320, #206765
    (Thanks to Steve M. Robbins for the initial implementation.)

So we _need_ debhelper (>= 6.0.7) dependency.  I just committed the
necessary change for debian-edu but wanted to make some noise about it
because this might cause some trouble for stable release updates or

Kind regards
