Lintian is a system that checks the Debian Policy when debhelper is building a package in Debian.
Lintian has several verification levels. By default, some are used. However, you can refine it via config file. It’s a common error to use the default setting and submit packages with hidden problems to mentors.
To activate all checks in lintian, edit the /etc/lintianrc and enable the following lines:
display-info = yes pedantic = yes display-experimental = yes
Be happy with lintian and mentors now!!!
