control-tarball-compression-format ctrl-script data-tarball-compression-format debhelper-autoscript-in-maintainer-scripts debian-build-system elf-maintainer-script maintainer-script-interpreter maybe-not-arch-all-binnmuable no-ctrl-scripts rules-does-not-require-root rules-requires-root-explicitly rules-requires-root-implicitly source-format I don't see how any of these (*) are useful to some wishing to uncover hidden problems with their packages. Indeed, it is almost certianly a net negative due to the additional output they would emit, leading to stronger errors and warnings being potentially hidden from human eyes. > I don't show experimental tags. To show classification tags yet not experimental ones is very rare way of regularly using Lintian IMHO. Classification tags are designed for reporting/statistics purposes, eg. generating pretty graphs on lintian.debian.org. Putting it another way, if you are using a classification tag for _actionable_ advice, then it suggests that tag should not be a classification tag. (*) This, I believe, is the case for maybe-not-arch-all-binnmuable. As I see it, it should be moved to a experimental severity and, perhaps, something added to the text to underline that it should not be blindly followed.
