Maybe you can illuminate me.

Perhaps - in addition to full command invoked - also mention which version of lintian you are using, both of you.

There is a number of subdirectories under plugins/ and some of them
seem to contain components already available in Debian.
I've found the following ones:


We should rely on the libraries provided by the system rathen than
bring, compile and link against local copies.

I noticed that too, but when I asked to the upstream author if I can safely remove them he said that all the bundled libraries have been modified by him in a way or another and the software probably wouldn't build/work. I didn't investigate further.

Upstream is free to have other priorities than Debian.

Debian has a strong interest in sharing code across the many many many many projects that we tie together in a unified distribution.

So please do investigate: Perhaps try figure out which version the embedded copies derive from, make diffs against the pristine sources, and try figure out if a) the changes are crucial for the functionality of deadbeef, and b) if perhaps the changes are relevant generally for those shared libraries in Debian - and perhaps even upstream (even if upstream deadbeef author didn't find it relevant to pass the patches upstream).
