Ecompressed-symlink-with-wrong-ext

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.319. That is the most recent version we know about.

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.

Please refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.5 for details.
