The following snippet is pretty common and always, IMHO, wrong:

It should either refer to GPL-2 or GPL-3. The same applies to GFDL and LGPL.

   * checks/copyright-file{,.desc}:
     + [RA] Add checks for references to the versionless FSF license files,
       pedantic if the package license allows relicensing under later
       versions.   Patch from Raphael Geissert.  (Closes: #497346)
   * checks/debhelper{,.desc}:
     + [RA] Use binary_field() to read control fields for binary packages.
       Patch from Raphael Geissert.
     + [RA] Read only the first line of debian/compat, matching debhelper's
       behavior.  Improve the parsing of DH_COMPAT to pick up values that
       aren't numbers.  Warn of compatibility levels that aren't numbers.
       Use the same compatibility level that debhelper would use in some
       other checks.  Patch from Raphael Geissert.  (Closes: #513767)

       special case.  (Closes: #513423)
   * checks/fields:

       the Build script is referenced in clean.  Thanks, Charles Plessy and
       gregor herrmann.  (Closes: #421549)
   * checks/fields{,.desc}:
     + [RA] Run dbg-package-missing-depends against the source package
       instead of the binary package and check that it has a dependency
       against another binary package built from the same source rather
       than making assumptions about the package name.  Patch from Raphael
       Geissert.  (Closes: #513336)
     + [RA] Use binary_field() to read control fields for binary packages.
       Patch from Raphael Geissert.
   * checks/files{,.desc}:
     + [RA] Add check for fonts in non-font packages.  Thanks, Paul Wise
       and Raphael Geissert.  (Closes: #513650)
     + [RA] Add check for fonts that duplicate already packaged fonts.
       Patch from Raphael Geissert.  Thanks to Paul Wise for analysis and
       data.  (Partly addresses #298545)
   * checks/shared-libs.desc:
     + [RA] Add references to the UsingSymbolsFiles wiki page in the tags
       requesting generation of a symbols file.
     + [RA] Provide details on how to manually check some of the shared
       library problems that Lintian diagnoses.  (Closes: #513086)
   * checks/standards-version:
     + [RA] Be robust against unparsable timestamps in changelog files.
       Patch from Raphael Geissert.  (Closes: #513766)
   * checks/version-substvars:
     + [RA] Use binary_field() to read control fields for binary packages.
       Patch from Raphael Geissert.
   * data/files/fonts:
     + [RA] New file listing all font filenames in Debian and the
       containing package names.  Generated by private/refresh-fonts-data.
   * data/output/manual-references:
     + [RA] Manual reference data used for formatting tag descriptions.
       Moved from lib/manual_refs and added an explanatory header.
   * frontend/lintian-info:
     + [RA] Use Lintian::Tag::Info instead of Read_taginfo.
   * lib/Lintian/Collect/Source.pm:
     + [RA] Add binary_field() method to return a binary package field from
       debian/control for a source package.  Based on a patch by Raphael
     + [RA] Rewrite the binaries() method to use binary_field().  Based on
       a patch by Raphael Geissert.
   * lib/Lintian/Output.pm:
     + [ADB] Add a colour for pedantic tags to avoid warnings when colourised
       output is used and make the combination more useful.  Thanks, gregor
       herrmann.  (Closes: #513132)
     + [RA] Use Lintian::Tag::Info instead of Read_taginfo.
     + [RA] Force early exporting of functions to be more robust in the
       face of circular library dependencies.  The circular dependencies
       had already existed but not previously caused problems.
   * lib/Lintian/Output/LetterQualifier.pm:
     + [ADB] Add support for pedantic tags.
     + [RA] Use Lintian::Tag::Info instead of Read_taginfo.
   * lib/Lintian/Tag/Info.pm:
     + [RA] New module providing an interface to tag metadata.  Currently,
       this only supports formatting the tag description, merging the
       actions previously done by Manual_refs.pm and Read_taginfo.pm.  It
       defers loading of manual references until they're needed, which
       removes the requirement that LINTIAN_ROOT be already set in the
       environment before running the reporting harness.  It also saves a
       small amount of time in runs without -I.
   * lib/Manual_refs.pm:
     + [RA] Removed, merged into Lintian::Tag::Info.
   * lib/manual_refs:
     + [RA] Moved to data/output/manual-references.
   * lib/Read_taginfo.pm:
     + [RA] Removed, merged into Lintian::Tag::Info.
   * lib/Util.pm:
     + [RA] Force early exporting of functions to be more robust in the
       face of circular library dependencies.
   * man/lintian.1:
     + [ADB] Fix the spelling of "pedantic".  Thanks, Michal Čihař.
       (Closes: #513083)
   * private/refresh-fonts-data:
     + [RA] New script to refresh the list of font filenames and containing
       packages in Debian.  Based on a script by Raphael Geissert.
   * private/refresh-manual-refs:
     + [RA] Renamed from manual_refs_update.pl.  Add a section heading to
       the output file and update the file in Lintian's data directory
       directly rather than printing to standard output.
   * reporting/config:
     + [RA] Set a bin directory and disable signature checks by default.
   * reporting/harness
     + [RA] Add the bin directory to the path and create a gpg link to
       /bin/true if signature checks are disabled.  This is a hack to work
       with the etch version of dpkg-source.  In lenny, the --no-check flag
       will be used instead.  Patch from Raphael Geissert.
   * reporting/html_reports:
     + [RA] Use Lintian::Tag::Info instead of Read_taginfo.
   * t/runtests:
     + [RA] Add support for selecting a different test package skeleton.
   * t/templates/pedantic{,.upstream}:
     + [RA] New template that passes all pedantic checks.
