| N:
| N:   The package seems to declare a relation on awk. awk is a virtual
| N:   package, but it is special since it's de facto essential. If you don't
| N:   need to depend on a specific version of awk (which wouldn't work
| N:   anyway, as dpkg doesn't support versioned provides), you should remove
| N:   the dependency on awk.
| N:
| zsh: exit 1     lintian -i gawk_3.1.2-1_i386.deb
| % dpkg -I gawk_3.1.2-1_i386.deb | grep awk
|  Package: gawk
|  Provides: awk
|  Description: GNU awk, a pattern scanning and processing language

|   Gawk is the GNU Project's implementation of the AWK programming language.
|   4 version of UNIX awk. Gawk also provides more recent Bell Labs awk

I'm not sure how lintian gets from "Provides: awk" to
"depends-on-awk", but it shouldn't ...

Changes: 
 lintian (1.22.12) unstable; urgency=low
 .
   The ``Fix those false positives, mkay'' release, prepared for all Debian
   Maintainers by Frank Lichtenheld and Jeroen van Wolffelaar.
   Best served cold.
 .
   * debian/control:
     + [FL] Make Uploaders a single line field. It didn't really
       break, but at least DDPO had its difficulties
 .
   * man/lintian.1:
     + [FL] sync man page with the --help output by adding missing options
       Based on a patch by Robert Lemmen. (Closes: #198615)
     + [FL] sync man page with the current list of checks and collection
       scripts
 .
   * checks/binaries:
     + [FL] Don't complain about non-stripped kernel modules.
       Patch by Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsaker (Closes: #203373)
     + [JvW] Exclude binaries and packages named *-static from the
       binary-is-static test. Exception for sash removed. (Closes: #215235)
   * checks/changelog-file:
     + [FL] Check that encoding of changelog file is UTF-8, based on a patch by
       Denis Barbier (Closes: #175318)
   * checks/copyright-file{,.desc}:
     + [FL] Don't advise to point to the perl packages' copyright file.
       Thanks to Martin Orr for pointing this out. (Closes: #193293)
     + [FL] Fixed false positives of
       copyright-should-refer-to-common-license-file-for-gpl due to
       the GFDL. Thanks to Ross Burton for reporting this. (Closes: #192278)
   * checks/deb-format{,.desc}:
     + [JvW] Fix perl variable-name clash causing unusually formatted error
       output (only important if you do automatic processing on it)
     + [FL] The current script is by Denis Barbier, correcting author in
       .desc file
   * checks/debhelper.desc:
     + [FL] correct reference to debhelper manpage. It's debhelper(7), not
       debhelper(1). Thanks to Brian Nelson for pointing this out
       (Closes: #188245)
   * checks/debconf:
     + [JvW] Update valid types, since currently 'title' is supported now too
       (Closes: #234379, #234608)
   * checks/description:
     + [FL] fix description-is-dh_make-template check. (Closes: #215125)
       Fix suggested by Josip Rodin
   * checks/etcfiles.desc:
     + [FL] correcting abbrevation of etcfiles to 'etc', was 'ini' which
       is already used by init.d
   * checks/fields:
     + [FL] Really check only "real" dependency fields for needlessy
       depends (Closes: #185035)
     + [JvW] Don't consider depending on coreutils bad, as this is in a way a
       versioned depend (Closes: #216536)
     + [FL] Remove the build-depends-without-arch-dep check. It produces
       way too much false positives and can only be replaced by
       a sophisticated debian/rules parser
       (Closes: #192037, #202950, #214231)
     + [JvW] Test syntax of Uploaders: too
     + [JvW] Accept more whitespace in relations, which is allowed according to
       policy, thanks Adrian Bunk for noticing, FL for patch (Closes: #200280)
   * checks/filenames:
     + [JvW] Revised the symlink detection stuff, it is now more rigorous, and
       has seperate warning for recursive symlinks that are otherwise not
       necessarily wrong (Closes: #118080)
   * checks/files:
     + [FL] only issue package-installs-nonbinary-perl-in-usr-lib-perl5 if
       there is no binary perl file at all in the package, since this
       reflects the way the Installer module behaves (Closes: #199898)
   * checks/huge-usr-share:
     + [JvW] Check for a big /usr/share (currently 1-2MB will trigger it) in
       arch-dependent packages. Currently just I:. Thanks Steve McIntyre for
       the idea. (Closes: #232849)
   * checks/menus{,.desc}:
     + [FL] Remove non-exectuable-in-etc-menu-methods as it doesn't
       reflects the current menu manual (Closes: #229460)
   * checks/po-debconf:
     + [JvW] Check whether files listed in debian/po/POTFILES.in actually
       exist, and only positively detect po-debconf usage if dependency is
       there. (Patch by Denis Barbier <barbier@debian.org>, only minimally
       modified)
   * checks/scripts:
     + [FL] Fix check for "exec ..." line. Fix suggested by Josip Rodin.
       (Closes: #212811)
     + [JvW] Tighten up mknod, dpkg --print-architecture and killall detection
       in maintainer scripts, would need rewrite to be really sane.
       (Closes: #148548, #161820, #192300)
   * checks/shared-libs:
     + [FL] Be more tolerant to variations when checking for
       postrm-unsafe-ldconfig. Thanks to Martin Godisch, Steinar H. Gunderson
       and Aidas Kasparas for their input. (Closes: #218543, #233740)
 .
   * unpack/unpack-binpkg-l1:
     + [FL] tar uses now h to signal hardlinks which breaks a lot of our code.
       so sed'ing it away. Many many thanks to Theodore Y. Ts'o for bringing
       this to our attention (Closes: #234545)
