Package: keep Severity: minor User: debian...@lists.debian.org Usertags: homepage-field
[ This is an automated bug report, part of the mass bug filing discussed at <http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2011/02/msg00367.html>. The submitter is Stefano Zacchiroli, reachable at <z...@debian.org>. ] According to lintian, keep uses its long description to point to upstream homepage, following an old Developer's Reference recommendation. That practice has various drawbacks, including the inability to automatically process homepage information from package-related services such as packages.d.o, the PTS, etc. Starting from version 1.14.6, dpkg supports Homepage: as a regular field in debian/control. You can check Debian Policy Â§ 5.6.23 for more information <http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-controlfields.html#s-f-Homepage> Please remove the deprecated pseudo header from the long description of keep and turn it into a regular debian/control field. In case of multiple binary packages, doing so would also allow to factor out homepage information into the source stanza of debian/control, instead of repeating it in each binary stanza. Cheers.
