Wmaintainer-script-calls-chown-improperly

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.234. That is the most recent version we know about.

chown user.group is called in one of the maintainer scripts. The correct syntax is chown user:group. Using "." as a separator is still supported by the GNU tools, but it will fail as soon as a system uses the "." in user or group names.

Refer to the chown(1) manual page for details.
