Hi Guillem,

I note your dislike of the decision that was reached by the CTTE in
#904302. I will pass no comment on it either way.

Whilst I have not seen Ubuntu folks complain about this tag being
emitted by Lintian I can understand the request to not run it on
Ubuntu (etc.).

However, I do not follow why a Debian maintainer maintaining Debian
packages should not see this when running Lintian locally, both in
principle and in practice; it would be confusing for it to only
appear on lintian.d.o and, for example, *I* would want to be
alerted of this prior to an upload.

Lintian supports dpkg-vendor - can we not just add an exception to
the Ubuntu vendor-specific profile?

Best wishes,
