      then create a fake one.

      where to find more information.

    + [NT] Assume dpkg (>= 1.16.1) is present.
    + [NT] Work around bug in Perl (#723805) when using "glob"
      within threads. Thanks to Brian "hugmeir" Fraser for
      finding the underlying cause.
  * t/tests/legacy-debug/debian/debian/control:

      trivially satisfied in stable.

    + [NT] Rename link_resolved to link_normalized.
  * lib/Lintian/Unpacker.pm:
    + [NT] On platform that support it, change the "name" of the
      process running the collection. This makes it easier to
      see what collections are currently being run (like in the

  * private/refresh-perl-provides:
    + [NT] Apply patch from Niko Tyni to improve Lintian's
      data file about Perl modules provided by perl-base.

    + [NT] Removed, merged into debian/main.profile.
  * profiles/debian/ftp-master-auto-reject.profile:
    + [NT] Include md5sums-mismatch and non-standard-toplevel-dir
      as an overridable tag.
