Since the upload of install-info to sid, packages installing info
documentation should no more call install-info in their postinst.
It is now automatically done by the file trigger provided by the

entries (INFO-DIR-SECTION, START-INFO-DIR-ENTRY / END-INFO-DIR-ENTRY)

lintian (2.2.13) unstable; urgency=low
The "triggerized install-info" release.
* Summary of tag changes:
+ [RA] Rework missing-separator-between-lines to only include two
specific package stanzas in the extra tag data and not include
newlines. Generalize it to also detect missing commas between
substvars, replacing missing-comma-after-substvar.
+ [RA] Don't warn about outdated libtool if the package build-depends
on libtool. Thanks, Kurt Roeckx. (Closes: #534134)
+ [RA] Fix typo in *-contains-ht-tags-file description. Patch from
Peter Pentchev. (Closes: #534218)
+ [ADB] If the Debian r-cran makefile include is used in the rules file,
cdbs, debhelper and r-base-dev are required in Build-Depends. Thanks,
Charles Plessy. (Closes: #534684)
+ [RA] Allow variable settings before ant, dpatch, and dh when
checking debian/rules for dependencies. Thanks, Ryan Niebur.
+ [RA] Allow non-core Python packages to install files into
/usr/lib/python*/dist-packages, the extension location for Python
2.6 and later. Thanks, Julian Andres Klode. (Closes: #534212)
+ [RA] Check for /usr/share/info/dir files included in the package.
Thanks, Bas Zoetekouw. (Closes: #535566)
+ [RA] Ignore dir files; they're a different error that's now caught
+ [RA] Remove all checking of maintainer scripts, since info dir
entries are now handled with triggers. Now always warn of info
files without INFO-DIR-SECTION, even if install-info were called
with a --section argument. Warn of info files without a DIR-ENTRY
section. Thanks, Raphaël Hertzog. (Closes: #534640)
+ [RA] Fix a bug in the detection of bad info file extensions that
missed extensions containing the string "info".
+ [RA] Improve the long descriptions of tags about compression of info
+ [RA] Take into account dangling symlinks in /etc/init.d. Patch from
Raphael Geissert. (Closes: #534139)
+ [RA] Don't require symlink init scripts to be conffiles and realize
they are included in the package even if the symlink is dangling.
Thanks, Steve Langasek. (Closes: #534326)
+ [RA] Don't warn about hyphens used as minus signs inside draft mode,
since \- cannot be used there. Based on a patch by Gennaro Oliva.
+ [RA] Don't include the package name as extra data in tags that are
only issued for source packages. Patch from Raphael Geissert.
+ [RA] Lower certainty of read-in-maintainer-script to possible and
mention false positives. Thanks, Raphaël Hertzog. (Closes: #534276)
+ [RA] Allow for output redirection when parsing diversions in
maintainer scripts. Thanks, Andreas Beckmann. (Closes: #534942)
+ [ADB] Detect the use of the "source" bashism when the sourced filename
contains a tilde or consists of a single character. Thanks, Raphael
Geissert and Ryan Niebur.
+ [RA] Avoid a false positive in the bashism check for trap with
signal numbers when the the trap command contains a number. Thanks,
Julien Cristau. (Closes: #534580)
+ [RA] Check for any maintainer script running install-info, since
this is now handled with triggers.
+ [RA] Use a consistent way of displaying the line number of a problem.
+ [ADB] Handle the fact that, when Lintian is run as root, the output of
"file" on set[gu]id files may include the fact that they are set[gu]id.
Thanks, Peter Pentchev. (Closes: #533618)
+ [RA] Increment the package list format and expect the archive area
as an additional argument. Patch from Raphael Geissert.
+ [RA] Add changes misspelling.
+ [RA] Fix correction for endianness. Thanks, Raphael Geissert.

anywhere in the string. We don't want to strip the period from
res.size. Thanks, Zack Weinberg. (Closes: #534234)
+ [RA] Replace all newlines in tag data with \n, not just the first.
+ [RA] The archive area may be a comma-separated list of areas. Patch
from Raphael Geissert.

suite by test name.
+ [RA] Change area back to section in the loop for generating the
package index pages to be consistent with the page template.
+ [RA] Allow for multiple archive areas in the front page summary.
+ [RA] Add the archive area to the tag information.
+ [RA] Include the archive area in the source package heading if it's
not main. Include the archive area in the binary package heading if
it's different than the source package archive area.
+ [RA] Collect information from multiple archive areas and include the
archive area in the package list. Patch from Raphael Geissert.
