N: The control file specifies source relations for architecture-dependent

N: likely you need to change Build-Depends to Build-Depends-Indep.
N: Refer to Policy Manual, section 7.6 for details.
The `Build-Depends' and `Build-Conflicts' fields must be
satisfied when any of the following targets is invoked: `build',
`clean', `binary', `binary-arch', `build-arch', `build-indep' and
The `Build-Depends-Indep' and `Build-Conflicts-Indep' fields must
be satisfied when any of the following targets is invoked:
`build', `clean', `build-indep', `binary' and `binary-indep'.
After reading 7.6, I still fail to see the purpose of this check.
If no architecture-dependent packages are build, Build-Depends and
Build-Depends-Indep are synonymous since binary-arch and build-arch do
not exist, so I fail to see where is the problem.
I personnally prefer to use Build-Depends in this case, to stress
there is no partial build.
In fact, if clean is removed from Build-Depends-Indep as of the recent
policy proposal, Build-Depends will be the only correct choice.

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.
+ [FL] Make Uploaders a single line field. It didn't really
break, but at least DDPO had its difficulties
+ [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
+ [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)
+ [FL] Check that encoding of changelog file is UTF-8, based on a patch by
Denis Barbier (Closes: #175318)
+ [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)
+ [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
+ [FL] correct reference to debhelper manpage. It's debhelper(7), not
debhelper(1). Thanks to Brian Nelson for pointing this out
+ [JvW] Update valid types, since currently 'title' is supported now too
(Closes: #234379, #234608)
+ [FL] fix description-is-dh_make-template check. (Closes: #215125)
Fix suggested by Josip Rodin
+ [FL] correcting abbrevation of etcfiles to 'etc', was 'ini' which
is already used by init.d
+ [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)
+ [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)
+ [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)
+ [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)
+ [FL] Remove non-exectuable-in-etc-menu-methods as it doesn't
reflects the current menu manual (Closes: #229460)
+ [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 <email@example.com>, only minimally
+ [FL] Fix check for "exec ..." line. Fix suggested by Josip Rodin.
+ [JvW] Tighten up mknod, dpkg --print-architecture and killall detection
in maintainer scripts, would need rewrite to be really sane.
(Closes: #148548, #161820, #192300)
+ [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)
+ [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)
