lintian (2.5.43) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Summary of tag changes:
    + Added:
      - maybe-not-arch-all-binnmuable
    + Removed:
      - dh_desktop-is-deprecated
      - dh_undocumented-is-obsolete
      - restriction-formula-with-debhelper-with-conflicting-version
      - restriction-formula-with-versioned-dpkg-dev-conflict

  * checks/{control-file,fields}.{desc,pm}:
    + [JW] Remove confusing checks for build-conflicts related to build
  * checks/debhelper.{desc,pm}:
    + [NT] Remove check for dh_undocumented and dh_desktop as debhelper
      has dropped the helper.
  * checks/
    + [JW] Apply patch from Felipe Sateler to properly remove .sh suffix
      when checking systemd-initscript matching.  (Closes: #819087)
  * checks/version-substvars.{desc,pm}:
    + [NT] Add an experimental tag to check for arch:all
      binNMUability.  This is currently not supported at all
      and there is no known fix for the tag.  That said, it
      is still useful for determining how many packages might
      be affected by it in case Debian will support arch:all

  * commands/
    + [NT] Use the sha256 instead of the sha1 checksum field
      for finding related files and checking which members
      have changed.
    + [NT] Support reading Packages.xz and Sources.xz files.

  * data/spelling/corrections:
    + [JW] Add more corrections.
      Thanks to Mattia Rizzolo for suggesting one of them.

  * frontend/dplint:
    + [NT] Put $LINTIAN_VERSION on its own line so the build
      time substitution works again.  Thanks to Stuart
      Prescott for reporting the issue.

  * helpers/coll/objdump-info-helper:
    + [JW] Apply patch from Dan Nicholson to keep TEXTREL entries from the
      dynamic section.  (Closes: #819506)

  * lib/Lintian/
    + [JW,ADB] Don't ignore midword punctuation characters when
      spell-checking.  (Closes: #818003)  Thanks to Andreas Beckmann for
      the bug report.

  * t/tests/binaries-missing-depends-on-libc/debian/debian/rules:
    + [JW] Apply patch from Dan Nicholson to pass --no-as-needed to the
      linker.  (Closes: #819551)
