   The "Policy 4.1.4" release.
   * Summary of tag changes:
     + Added:
       - debian-rules-contains-unnecessary-get-orig-source-target
       - source-contains-empty-directory
     + Removed:
       - debian-rules-missing-good-practice-target-dfsg
   * checks/control-file.desc:
     + [CL] Correct location of "AutomaticDebugPackages" wiki page in the
       description of the debian-control-has-obsolete-dbg-package tag.
       Thanks to Antonio Ospite for the report.  (Closes: #893480)
   * checks/cruft.{desc,pm}:
     + [CL] Add a pedantic warning for upstream tarballs that contain empty
       directories as these can cause problems with git-buildpackage.
       Thanks to Balint Reczey for the idea!  (Closes: #894368)
   * checks/gir.{desc,pm}:
     + [CL] Apply a patch series from Simon McVittie to match the Gobject
       Introspection policy and fixing a series of false-positives. Thanks!
       (Closes: #881491)
   * checks/java.{desc,pm}:
     + [CL] Apply patch from Bas Couwenberg to bump the maximum permissible
       bytecode version number now that openjdk-9 is now the default-jdk.
       (Closes: #894397)
     + [CL] Apply patch from Bas Couwenberg to update the description of
       the unknown-java-class-version tag for openjdk-9.  (Closes: #894397)
   * checks/
     + [CL] Add .ogg files to the list of non-license file extensions to
       avoid a false-positive in extra-license-file. Thanks to Innocent De
       Marchi for the report.  (Closes: #894139)
     + [CL] Avoid false-positives in Mallard XML files; <link href="...">
       tags are anchor element and not followed automatically. Thanks to
       Simon McVittie for the report.  (Closes: #894690)
   * checks/rules.{desc,pm}:
     + [CL] Stop recommending that packages with repacked tarballs specify a
       get-orig-source target; this was removed in Debian Policy 4.1.4 in
       favour of uscan(1) and debian/watch.
     + [CL] Warn about packages that have apparently unnecessary
       "get-orig-source" targets such as single-line calls to uscan(1).
       Thanks to Mattia Rizzolo for the idea.  (Closes: #895036)
   * checks/
     + [CL] Also include the offending/unknown shebang in the output of
       missing (unversioned) interpreters.
   * checks/source-copyright.desc:
     + [CL] Change the severity from pedantic ("P:") to info ("I:") for the
       missing-explanation-for-repacked-upstream-tarball tag.
   * checks/testsuite.{desc,pm}:
     + [CL] Apply patch from Georg Faerber to add missing "needs-reboot" to
       the list of known autopkgtest restrictions.  (Closes: #894817)
     + [CL] Apply patch from Georg Faerber to adjust the autopkgtest
       URIs from Alioth to  (Closes: #894820)
   * checks/
     + [CL] Apply patch from Thomas Dallmair to avoid false positives in the
       udev-rule-missing-subsystem tag when SUBSYSTEM GOTO is not the last
       "GOTO" statement.  Thanks!  (Closes: #894356)
   * checks/
     + [CL] Re-enable YAML parsing of upstream metadata which was disabled
       in 2.5.51 (via #861958) to close CVE-2017-8829 as we can now use the
       $LoadBlessed option of YAML::XS if we have version 0.69 or above
       Thanks to Dylan Aïssi for the report.  (Closes: #894747)
   * commands/, checks/{fields,patch-systems,python}, ...:

   * data/spelling/corrections:
     + [PW] Add a number of corrections.
   * lib/Lintian/
     + [CL] Avoid false positives in spelling detection by allowing "(s)"
       suffixes instead of universally stripping all parenthesis.  This
       prevents, for example, "directory(s)" from triggering false-positive
       whilst still warning about "directorys".  Thanks to Patrick Matthäi
       for the report.  (Closes: #894077)
   * lib/Lintian/
     + [NT] Fix a bug in do_fork that could cause lintian to fork bomb.
       (See #890873)
