Hi Zigo,

We discussed the usage of l-c file among different packagers in 14th Jan TC meeting[1],

can you confirm if Debian directly depends on l-c file and use them OR it is good for
code quality if project maintains it?

Below packagers does not use l-c file instead use u-c
- openstack-charms
- ubuntu
