Package: lintian
Version: 2.5.80
Severity: wishlist

Now with policy 4.1.4, people are encouraged to move from get-orig-source
to uscan + files-excluded.

Nonetheless, I know there are plenty of packages having that target with
the only goal of calling uscan (see for example all of pkg-mate

I find such target quite odd:
1) people ought to be able to call uscan themselves
2) people should call uscan with whatever options they prefer, I don't
   see why somebody should put some random preferences in d/rules
3) the duplication across packages is obnoxious, with all the effort
   than by debhelper to reduce it
