Subject: lintian: false positive on embedded-php-library for streams.php
Date: Mon, 08 Aug 2011 18:46:24 +0200
Package: lintian
Version: 2.5.1
Severity: normal

I get this with wordpress:
W: wordpress: embedded-php-library usr/share/wordpress/wp-includes/pomo/streams.php

This streams.php is not the one of php-gettext and thus the tag is a false

I would suggest to update the regex in /usr/share/lintian/checks/files
to add a zero-width negative look-behind assertion like this:
    [ qr,(?i)(?<!pomo/)streams\.php$, => 'php-gettext' ],

Because pomo/streams.php is something different (even though it's a derivative
work of the same initial file).
