lintian (1.23.46) unstable; urgency=low
The "five Lintian committers!" release.
+ [RA] Anchor file matches for Perl libraries and debugging symbols so
as to not match partial paths. Based on a patch from Niko Tyni.
+ [RA] Also check for make -i when checking if errors from make clean or
distclean are ignored. Thanks, Jörg Sommer. (Closes: #469024)
+ [RA] Adjust for the extra space added by Parse::DebianChangelog when
checking line length. Thanks, Robert Millan. (Closes: #467019)
+ [RA] Accept (and ignore for now) the new Checksums-Sha1,
Checksums-Sha256, and Checksums-Md5 fields in source packages.
Thanks, Raphael Hertzog. (Closes: #466979)
+ [RA] Skip empty dependencies for stronger-dependency-implies-weaker.
+ [FL] Warn about empty control files. I can't see any use for
them. Exclude udebs though, since they might differ there.
+ [RA] Tests for copyright notices must be case-insensitive. Patch
from Chris Lamb. (Closes: #464992)
+ [RA] When looking for cases where Copyright is separated from a year
by a newline, also allow (C) before or after the newline. Thanks,
Michael Meskes. (Closes: #465258)
+ [RA] Further explain why lintian looks for a valid copyright notice.
+ [RA] Suggest an override if only the Debian packaging or some other
part of the package not linked with OpenSSL is covered by the GPL.
Thanks, Andrew Pollock. (Closes: #469106)
+ [FL] Add hg to the list of <vcs>-control-dir tags.
+ [RA] In the long description of outdated-autotools-helper-file,
point to autotool-dev's documentation. (Closes: #465132)
+ [RA] Remove now-unnecessary workarounds for calling File::Find with
symlink starting directory.
+ [RA] Warn of references to /usr/doc in README.Debian. Thanks,
Guillem Jover. (Closes: #465192)
+ [FL,RA] Merge all the tags for vcs ignore files, inventory files,
and vcs control dirs. Since the explanations don't actually differ,
different tags make no sense. While at it, add the mercurial
equivalents as well and update some of the tag descriptions. Partly
based on a patch by Chris Lamb.
+ [FL] Remove tag md5sums-control-file-is-empty in favour of
a more general tag in control-files.
+ [RA] Mention in binary-without-manpage that if the man pages are
provided by another package on which this package depends, a lintian
override is appropriate.
+ [RA] When the menu or desktop file invokes a quoted command via an
su program, don't try to check whether the command is in the
package. Thanks, Paul Wise. (Closes: #466665)
+ [RA] Check that doc-base files are encoded in UTF-8. Thanks, Robert
Luberda. (Closes: #468759)
+ [RA] Check doc-base sections against the new canonical list.
Thanks, Robert Luberda. (Closes: #463474)
+ [HE] Warn if the .diff.gz contains changes while the package uses
a patch system. (Closes: #452215)
+ [FL] Warn if a maintainer script is a valid shell script but
doesn't seem to have any actual code. Based on an idea
by Justin Pryzby. (Closes: #410042)
+ [RA] Update regexes based on checkbashisms to remove additional
false positives and add additional checks. Thanks, Adam D. Barratt.
+ [RA] Add kaptain. Thanks, Tobias Toedter. (Closes: #466701)
+ [RA] Allow zsh-beta as an alternative to zsh. Thanks, Joost van
Baal. (Closes: #468362)
+ [RA] Add yorick. Thanks, Thibaut Paumard. (Closes: #468370)
+ [RA] Add warnings for dpkg --assert* flags for features that have
been guaranteed for nearly a decade. Thanks, Bernhard R. Link.
+ [RA] Rename sharedobject-in-library-directory-not-actually-a-shlib
to sharedobject-in-library-directory-missing-soname for clarity.
Thanks, Peter Eisentraut. (Closes: #467425)
+ [RA] New file listing known doc-base sections.
+ [RA] Install the base directory for the Lintian root here.
+ [RA] Redo the installation rules to support arbitrary nesting under
the copied directories. As a side effect, install
lib/Tags/ColonSeparated.pm, unbreaking the experimental
colon-separated output format.
+ [CW] Make the presence of an Ubuntu release name in the version number
trigger the Ubuntu distribution field checks.
+ [RA] Fix option parsing bug leading lintian to incorrectly reject -a
or -p without a package.
+ [RA] Skip empty dependencies, avoiding false positives for
stronger-dependency-implies-weaker. Patch from Adam D. Barratt.
+ [RA] New module for loading and querying lists of keywords.
+ [RA] Extract Uploaders from the source package list.
+ [RA] Add another spelling correction.
+ [RA] Merriam-Webster and the OED have both given up on publically
vs. publicly, so we should as well. (Closes: #466617)
+ [RA] Load the correct configuration file.
+ [RA] Include packages for which one is an uploader in one's
maintainer page, marked accordingly. (Closes: #421011)
+ [TK] Correct Lintian maintainers address in page footers.
+ [RA] Include packages for which the maintainer is an uploader.
+ [RA] Include Uploaders in the package list.
+ [RA] Don't rely on the output format of dpkg-source to learn the
source directory and create a symlink. Instead, tell dpkg-source to
unpack the source directly into the unpacked directory. Discard
output of dpkg-source to allow for the current version, which prints
things even with -q (fixed in later versions). Thanks, Raphael
Hertzog. (Closes: #468927)
