Thanks for the info. Thus I will also use the Lintian 2.115 from
unstable to test all of my uploads.
This means that I will need to do override updates that add the
brackets (example ) to paths in packages that are intended for
Buster/Bullseye because their Lintian overrides are intended for
v2.115. I am fine doing this now that I know that others are also
using latest Lintian for all packaging QA.
Hopefully current Lintian maintainers will keep backwards
compatibility in mind and not introduce too many changes that make old
packages that were Lintian clean to error too much.
