Sharing Lintian hints, tips and patches (on a wiki)


Some Lintian warnings (tags) may not be trivial to fix, or there may be
some issues, side effects... The "lintian-info --tags" usually provide
enough hints, but some users might want to share more specific hints.

I have setup some pages on the wiki to help sharing them.

Basically, each lintian tag could have a page like[1]. The tag's
description isn't written statically in the page, but it can be easily
re-generated/re-imported from lintian. see the hidden instruction in
page[2] (you have to click on the "Comments" link at the top).

Do you think it can be useful? Do you have some ideas to make it better?
What about linking to those pages from lintian.debian.org/tags/*.html

Note that it should possible to setup a separate wiki instance for that
purpose (but still, sharing the user database).
