So for example in
the Lintian job
https://salsa.debian.org/mariadb-team/mariadb-10.3/-/jobs/3538211 uses
Lintian v2.115.3 and fails on issues that are not relevant for the
Buster release.

I could disable the Lintian check, but then I would miss some
potential real issues that I might have overlooked while importing a
new minor maintenance release on the Buster branch.

I commented this in
as pointed out by Santiago.
