      Description

      When building packages on/for Ubuntu and Debian, the 'lintian' tool is run as the last step to check package quality. This utility will produce warning or error messages according to its rules for packaging standards. The results are saved into the package. Although packages produced with lintian errors will successfully install, at least on Ubuntu the Software Center will throw up an ugly dialog declaring the package is of bad quality.

          Not all errors are equal. 'bad-distribution-in-changes-file' doesn't trigger an installation warning, nor does 'description-starts-with-package-name'.

          This is really good find! Not sure we can fix this in time for 0.7.0. But we should definitely address at least the most severe ones for 0.8.0.
