This just feels totally backwards to me.  lintian should be configured
to check what Debian policy requires, not the other way around, surely!?

Anyway, OK, I've updated my sid pbuilder (and my sid VM) and rebuilt,
and I don't see the warning.

I'm a bit concerned about the osis2mod bug in which pairs of paragraph
tags between verses seem to break things... but that's not a packaging
bug, so it's not my fault :)

So, we're ready for upload to Debian unstable!  RFS in next email.

Please consider lp:~pkgcrosswire/libsword/main to be "frozen" until we
hear from Roberto on whether this was uploaded to Debian or not.
