Lintian Reports

I library-package-name-for-application

All reports of library-package-name-for-application for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

This package contains a program in $PATH but is named like a library. E.g. instead of libfoo-bar-perl it should be named just foo-bar.

People tend to skip library-like named packages when looking for applications in the package list and hence wouldn't notice this package. See the reference for some (not perl-specific) reasoning.

In case the program in $PATH is only a helper tool and the package is primarily a library, please add a Lintian override for this tag.

Refer to for details.

Severity: info

Check: application-not-library

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

Emitted (non-overridden): 5, overridden: 1, total: 6
