Using a subset of all lintian tags
I read on debian-devel that lintian can use a subset of tags when it
checks packages. This might be a useful feature for downstream
projects, like maemo, which might be able to use only a limited amount
of lintian tags and would like to use their own.
Is there documentation describing this procedure?
If there isn't I am happy to write it, but I would like some pointers
into lintian itself. While the newer modules are superbly documented
(thanks Russ and Frank!) there is a still a significant amount of code
to wander through. I am aware of course of Tags.pm and the lintian
frontend, but any shortcut would be welcome; lintian code spelunking
Thanks very much,
