All reports of patch-system-but-direct-changes-in-diff for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The package uses a patch system, but the Debian diff.gz contains changes to files or creation of additional files outside of the debian directory. This often indicates accidental changes that weren't meant to be in the package or changes that were supposed to be separated out into a patch. The package will also more easily support possible future source package formats if all changes outside the debian directory are stored as patches.

Severity: minor, Certainty: certain

Check: patch-systems, Type: source
