non-native-package-with-native-version

All reports of non-native-package-with-native-version for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

This package has a native version number (a version number without a dash and a Debian portion) but is built as a non-native package. Usually this is an error caused by forgetting the Debian revision for a non-native package. In this case the solution is to add a Debian revision.

This error can also happen if the package is a 1.0 source format and there is a stray *.orig.tar.gz file in the parent directory. The file will trick dpkg-source into believing it was supposed to be a non-native package. Here the error can be solved by converting it to 3.0 (native) package or removing/renaming the *.orig.tar.gz file.

If you do not know what a "native" or a "non-native" package is, you are very likely working on a non-native package.

Severity: normal, Certainty: certain
