Hello all, I want to make sure what is the canonical URI for Vcs-Git and Vcs-Browser used in git-managed packages. I have seen lots of examples. Here is my understanding so far: # Anything not using "anonscm.debian.org" (e.g., git.debian.org) domain is not canonical # This one looks obsoleted; I heard that git protocol is no longer recommended Vcs-Git: git://anonscm.debian.org/pkg-foo/bar.git # I heard that this one is obsoleted too; QUERY_STRING looks ugly. Vcs-Browser: http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-foo/bar.git # This one seem acceptable Vcs-Git: https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-foo/bar.git # This one seems acceptable, too Vcs-Browser: https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-foo/bar.git # This one is also acceptable Vcs-Git: https://anonscm.debian.org/git/pkg-foo/bar.git # And this one Vcs-Browser: https://anonscm.debian.org/git/pkg-foo/bar.git So here are my questions: 1. Is my understanding correct? 2. Lintian has a tag "vcs-field-not-canonical"  which referred one previous email . However, I couldn't find anything about the "cgit" word. My thought is that we may not stick with cgit forever (for example, someone is pushing GitLab AFAIK). Why not just replace "cgit" with "git"? Then we won't need to change the uri if we are to move away from cgit. 3. Could we write such rules somewhere? I couldn't find any document on the Internet besides  and .  https://lintian.debian.org/tags/vcs-field-not-canonical.html  https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2011/05/msg00009.html -- Sincerely, Boyuan Yang
