Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

I application-in-library-section

This tag is experimental.

This package contains a binary in $PATH but is in a section just thought for libraries. It likely should be in another section like e.g. utils, text, devel, misc, etc., but not in e.g. perl, ruby or python.

People tend to skip these package sections when looking for applications in the package list and hence wouldn't notice this package.

In case the program in $PATH is only a helper tool and the package is primarily a library, please add a Lintian override for this tag.

Severity: info

Check: application-not-library
