Bug#892086: lintian: Check for unknown fields in dep5 debian/copyright

Salvo Tomaselli-3
Package: lintian
Version: 2.5.76
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

by mistake I had used an "Author" field in a dep5 copyright file,
and lintian doesn't complain about unknown fields.

It would be nice to have a warning about this, since it's normally a mistake.

Best

At the top. Is it allowed? I didn't see it in the dep5 spec.
