lintian 2.99.0 released


The Lintian maintainers are pleased to announce the release of Lintian
version 2.99.0.

Lintian dissects Debian packages and reports bugs and policy
violations. It contains automated checks for many aspects of Debian
policy as well as some checks for common errors.

This version includes the following changes:

  [ Chris Lamb ]
  * Update the declares-possibly-conflicting-debhelper-compat-versions tag
    as we could be specifying the level in debian/rules or debian/control.
    (Closes: #972464)

  [ Louis-Philippe Véronneau ]
  * Bump severity of the script-uses-unversioned-python-in-shebang tag and
    reword the warning message.

  [ Felix Lechner ]
  * Fix prefix detection for single orig tarball components that only have
    one directory component.

  [ Paul Wise ]
  * Add several spelling corrections and sort the dictionary.

This version available now in Debian unstable and will be backported
to buster-backports once it has migrated to bullseye.
