Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

I bin-sbin-mismatch

This tag is experimental.

The package installs a binary under /usr/sbin or /sbin but the specified file or maintainer script appears to incorrectly reference it under /usr/bin or /bin.

This is likely due to the maintainer identifying that the package requires root privileges or similar and thus installing the files to the sbin variant, but the package has not been comprehensively or completely updated to match.

Severity: info

Check: files/contents

These source packages in the archive trigger the tag.
