Latest, the warning about quilt patches without any description. Sure it
is nice to have a description, but I don't need lintian to tell it.
and in other words, the latest package I uploaded:
$ lintian kdebase_3.5.9.dfsg.1-6_i386.changes | wc --lines && lintian
kdebase_3.5.9.dfsg.1-6_i386.changes | tail -1
N: 58 tags overridden (32 errors, 26 warnings)
You are most welcome to join in and help fixing issues and especially
and then, there is the ~1500 open bug reports.
Please stop making the lives for the developers harder. Especially the
idea about automatically rejecting based on lintian.
