 lintian (1.22.11) unstable; urgency=low
   Jeroen van Wolffelaar <>
    * Upgrade lintian itself to policy 3.6.1
      + Drop question about removing lab on purge, just do it.
    * Update to Debian Policy 3.6.1, all references broken by
      section-reorganization are updated (Closes: #194257, #208945, #214949,
      also closes: #217384, #231884)
      (Patch by Nicholas Breen <>)
    * Support for dash scripts (Closes: #194787)
      (Patch by Frank Lichtenheld <>)
    * checks/binaries.desc:
      + Fix typo (Closes: #202856)
    * checks/deb-format, debian/control:
      + Rewrite by Denis Barbier, slightly cleaned up, renders
        libarchive-tar-perl dependency unneeded (Closes: #232875)
    * checks/filenames (and more):
      + Check for Subversion version control leftovers (Closes: #190067)

    * checks/po-debconf
      + Rewrite in Perl
      + Obsolete PO files are no more checked because po2debconf now
        automatically runs debconf-updatepo if PO files are older than
        templates files.  Of course PO files might be outdated (e.g. when
        downloaded from a BR), but it should occur seldom.
      + PO files are processed through msgfmt to ensure they are valid.
      + Based on patch by Denis Barbier <>, Closes: #210576
      + Check whether po-debconf is used at all, and warn if it isn't
      + Check for required and template.pot in debian/po

      + Added three checks for correct su-to-root usage (Closes: #188095)
      + Understand icon32x32 and icon16x16 (Closes: #200046)
      + Missing required tags are now an error (and check name changed)
      + Check tag-quotation
      + Rewrite needs check properly, being more precise what is allowed
      + Complain about needs="dwww", as this is obsolete accordint to menu
        (parts menu-format updates based on patch by Bill Allombert
    * checks/scripts
      + Recognise the 'tcl' interpreter, not the same as tclsh (Closes: #230182)
