E package-contains-info-dir-file

This package contains a file named dir or dir.old, possibly compressed, in /usr/share/info. This is the directory (or backup) of info pages and is generated automatically by install-info when a package containing info documentation is installed. Some upstream build systems create it automatically, but it must not be included in a package since it needs to be generated dynamically based on the installed info files on the system.

Severity: error

Check: documentation
