Lintian Reports

E dir-or-file-in-tmp

All reports of dir-or-file-in-tmp for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

Packages must not install files into /tmp or /var/tmp. The File Hierarchy Standard specifies that such files may be removed by the administrator and that programs may not depend on any files in /tmp being preserved across invocations, which combined mean that it makes no sense to ship files in these directories.

Refer to Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (/tmp : Temporary files) and Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (/var/tmp : Temporary files preserved between system reboots) for details.

Severity: serious, Certainty: certain

Check: files, Type: binary, udeb

This tag has not been emitted in any package tested by Lintian.
