Hello everybody,

I would like to add that in my experience, an innocent pedantic tag that
suddenly appears is sometimes the symptom that the package is totally broken
(like for instance lacking almost all files that it should contain).  That is
why I always run lintian with --pedantic.

Have a nice week-end,
