Lintian warning, e.g.:

W: slcurl source: package-uses-deprecated-debhelper-compat-version 4
N:    The debhelper compatibility version used by this package is marked as
N:    deprecated by the debhelper developer. You should really consider using
N:    a newer compatibility version.
N:    The compatibility version can be set in (preferred) debian/compat or by
N:    setting and exporting DH_COMPAT in debian/rules. If it is not set in
N:    either place, debhelper defaults to the deprecated compatibility version
N:    1.
N:    Refer to the debhelper(7) manual page for details.
N:    Severity: normal, Certainty: certain
