Lintian Reports

W script-with-language-extension

All reports of script-with-language-extension for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

When scripts are installed into a directory in the system PATH, the script name should not include an extension such as .sh or .pl that denotes the scripting language currently used to implement it. The implementation language may change; if it does, leaving the name the same would be confusing and changing it would be disruptive.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.4 (Scripts) for details.
