Re: Better Lintian checks

Hi Bastien,

Just FYI, the potential 'source-is-missing' false positive mentioned at
the beginning of #798900 [1] still exists, regarding the automatic
flagging of JS files with lines > 512 chars as minified although they
may not be.
The long line in question is also present in the source in my separately
packaged version of DataTables, which is built from upstream's source
repo exactly to address this borderline case.
See [2].

This just popped back on my radar since the recent rewording of the
lintian message broke my override ;)
