The text of the RFS is a boilerplate, but the package's page on
mentors.d.n should be correctly showing any Lintian warnings or
errors. I would assume that most of the Lintian issues that make their
way to the list are ones only seen by running it on the binary package
as mentors.d.n is for source packages. I know I have been guilty of
that in the past. I've personally incorporated a pbuilder hook to run
on packages after a build so that I'll not make that mistake again.
