Re: Bug#479248: does not install lintian overrides

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
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
