Pmanual-page-for-system-command

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.318. That is the most recent version we know about.

The command in /sbin or /usr/sbin are system administration commands; their manual pages thus belong in section 8, not section 1.

Please check whether the command is actually useful to non-privileged user in which case it should be moved to /bin or /usr/bin, or alternatively the manual page should be moved to section 8 instead, ie. /usr/share/man/man8.

Please refer to the hier(7) manual page for details.
