   * Summary of tag changes:
     + Added:
       - arch-wildcard-in-binary-package
       - bad-provided-package-name
       - conflicts-with-version
       - copyright-refers-to-deprecated-bsd-license-file
       - init.d-script-depends-on-unknown-virtual-facility
       - team-upload-has-incorrect-version-number
       - xc-package-type-in-debian-control (pedantic)
     + Removed:
       - arch-any-in-binary-pkg (now in arch-wildcard-in-binary-package)
       - package-type-in-debian-control
   * checks/changes-file.desc:
     + [RA] Add references for file-size-mismatch-in-changes-file and
   * checks/control-file{,.desc}:
     + [RA] Remove package-type-in-debian-control now that dpkg-dev handles
       it as desired by the d-i team.  xc-package-type-in-debian-control
       replaces it as a pedantic check to encourage switching to the
       official name.  Thanks, Raphael Hertzog.
     + [RA] Add reference for debian-control-with-duplicate-fields.
   * checks/copyright-file{,.desc}:
     + [RA] Deprecate references to /usr/share/common-licenses/BSD in
       debian/copyright following the change in Policy 3.8.5.
   * checks/fields{,.desc}:
     + [RA] Allow Breaks without a version if the broken package is a
       virtual package.
     + [RG] Check for invalid package names in provided (virtual)
     + [RG] Exclude dash from the depends-on-essential-package checks, as
       per discusion in debian-devel.  (Closes: #587209)
     + [RA] Allow architecture wildcards in build relations and in the
       Architecture field of binary and source packages.  (Closes: #582804)
     + [RA] Rename arch-any-in-binary-pkg to arch-wildcard-in-binary-package
       and diagnose any architecture wildcard, not just "any".
     + [RA] Warn of using Conflicts with a version, which should normally
       be Breaks instead, but only at wild-guess certainty for now.
   * checks/huge-usr-share{,.desc}:
     + [RA] Count file size from the tar listing rather than using du.  The
       results of du vary based on file system and other factors and make
       the tag difficult to test.
   * checks/init.d{,.desc}:
     + [RG] Check for init.d scripts depending on unknown virtual
     + [RA] Remove checkroot from the list of scripts that should use a
       virtual dependency since $local_fs is not quite the same and some
       packages (cryptsetup) care about the difference.  (Closes: #580082)
   * checks/manpages{,.desc}:
     + [RA] Run man page checks using the en_US.UTF-8 locale now that we
       guarantee it exists.  Should hopefully fix occasional problems with
       col complaining about bad multibyte characters.  (Closes: #575661)
   * checks/menu-format.desc:
     + [RA] Fix typo in long description of duplicated-key-in-desktop-entry.
       Thanks, Niels Thykier.  (Closes: #580700)
   * checks/menus:
     + [RG] Recognise call to update-menus when using 'exec.'
     + [RA] Skip Haskell library documentation when warning about
       documentation not registered with doc-base.  Patch from Erik de
       Castro Lopo.  (Closes: #586877)
   * checks/nmu{,.desc}:
     + [RA] Recognize team uploads and do not treat them like NMUs.  Patch
       from Charles Plessy.  (Closes: #582741)
   * checks/rules.desc:
     + [RA] Add reference for debian-rules-makemaker-prefix-is-deprecated.
   * checks/scripts:
     + [RG] Correctly handle variables at the beginning of a call to
       dpkg-divert.  Thanks, Andreas Beckmann.  (Closes: #586984)
   * collection/objdump-info:
     + [RG] Disable etch compatibility code.
   * collection/strings:
     + [RG] Correctly handle ELF binaries with whitespaces in their name.

   * data/fields/virtual-packages:
     + [RA] Update to current unstable and add the old xserver-xorg video
       and input virtual packages.
   * data/files/locale-codes:
     + [RG] Refresh to reflect change to private/refresh-locale-codes.
   * data/files/triplets:
     + [RG] Refresh against dpkg
   * data/init.d/virtual_facilities
     + [RG] New list of virtual facilities that exist in the archive.
   * data/output/ftp-master-fatal:
     + [RA] Remove arch-any-in-binary-pkg.
   * data/output/manual-references:
     + [RA] Update against latest Debian Policy and devref.
   * data/spelling/corrections:
     + [RG] Add more spelling corrections.
   * data/spelling/corrections-case:
     + [RG] Add capitalization correction for OAuth.  (Closes: #582353)
   * data/standards-version/release-dates:
     + [RA] Add Debian Policy 3.9.0.
   * frontend/lintian:
     + [RA] Set a PATH of /bin:/usr/bin if PATH is completely unset.
       Thanks, Carsten Hey.
   * lib/Lintian/Collect/
     + [RG] Correctly handle ELF binaries with whitespaces in their name.
   * lib/Lintian/
     + [RA] Rather than allowing only a package name or a substvar, allow
       substvars mixed into the package name.  (Closes: #580494)
   * lib/Lintian/
     + [ADB] Add missing "use Lintian::Output", required for the use of
       warning().  (Closes: #583555)

   * private/refresh-locale-codes:
     + [RG] Print elements with values only once.
   * private/refresh-virtual-packages-data:
     + [RA] Fix handling of # Keep: lines to work correctly now that
       virtual packages mentioned only once are excluded.
