Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

E compressed-symlink-with-wrong-ext

The package installs a symbolic link pointing to a compressed file, but the symbolic link does not use the same file extension than the referenced file. In most cases, this can produce troubles when the user or a program tries to access the file through the link.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.5 (Symbolic links) for details.
