Package: lintian
Version: 2.5.80
Severity: wishlist

My outreachy mentee renamed an old patch to:

lintian complained about that with:
 W: libosmo-sccp source: patch-file-present-but-not-mentioned-in-series 

I would like to suggest that such a name will be ignored as valid filename for a patch (maybe a list of "valid" names can appear on lintian.d.o).
