Once libconfig-model-dpkg-perl/experimental is installed on your system, 'cme
check dpkg' checks the contents of all lintian-overrides files and warn about
The command 'cme fix dpkg' replaces obsolete tags with new tag names.
No other check is done on lintian-overrides files.
I could also provide a cme command that would check only overrides files *only*
(i.e. 'cme fix lintian-overrides' would not touch all the other package files).
This could be useful as a lintian-brush script.
Is this something Debian people would be interested in ?
All the best
