Development is primarily done on unstable, but that can be, well,
unstable (at times).  You have a couple options.  If you want to stick
with squeeze, you could use the lintian 2.5.3 backport from
squeeze-backports [0], which is of course more up to date, or you could
take your chances with testing, which is surprisingly well-behaved, or
unstable if you're feeling adventurous.

Anyway, good luck!
