Bug Description


Any chance we could get Lintian in Trusty updated / backported?

Distro Info:
Package: Lintian v2.5.22ubuntu1
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
Release: 14.04
Codename: trusty

Lintian Package Info:
Ubuntu Trusty = 2.5.22
Ubuntu Utopic = 2.5.27

Debian Wheezy-backports 2.5.28
Debian Jessie = 2.5.28
Debian Sid : 2.5.30

When trying to get new packages introduced via Debian, lintian checks are missing many copyright file warnings and a few others when uploading to It would be nice if we could get Trusty up to at least 2.5.28.
