Epackage-contains-file-in-etc-skel

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

This package ships the specified file under /etc/skel. Files in this directory are copied into new user accounts by adduser(8).

However, /etc/skel should be empty as possible as there is no mechanism for ensuring files are copied into the accounts of existing users when the package is installed.

Please remove the installation of this file, ensuring this package can automatically create them or can otherwise function without them.

Please refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.7.5 for details.
