I've rebased these patches (no changes) and pushed them to:

    https://salsa.debian.org/smcv/lintian.git -b gir-881491

Reviews welcome. They still pass tests against current Lintian, after I
re-wrap an (unrelated) over-long line in d/changelog that trips a coding
style check.

The mini-policy change that mandates the same thing checked by the last
commit was released in gobject-introspection/1.54.1-4 and has been in
buster since late December.

Most (all?) GNOME packages already comply with the new mini-policy, so
applying these patches would fix many of their false-positives.

Thanks,
