I bin-sbin-mismatch

All reports of bin-sbin-mismatch for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

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

This tag is experimental. Please file a bug report if the tag seems wrong.
