- The lintian error no-upstream-changelog is shown if using the --pedantic option for lintian and if upstream has no changelog file. To get rid of the lintian error create the file:
with the following content:
# Upstream does not provide a chaneglog file <pkg-name>: no-upstream-changelog
An example is ruby-rack-cors. If upstream does provide a changelog file, but it is not added, you can add it by using override_dh_installchangelogs in the file debian/rules:
override_dh_installchangelogs: dh_installchangelogs Changelog.md
In this case the upstream Changelog is called Changelog.md.
