Lintian Reports

E source-contains-unsafe-symlink

All reports of source-contains-unsafe-symlink for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The source contains an unsafe symlink. If followed, the link will escape the source root. Note that all absolute symlinks are unconditionally considered "unsafe" in this case (unlike in binary packages).

If it is a part of the package's testsuite, Lintian may have failed to recognise it as a test. In that case, please override the tag.

Severity: serious, Certainty: possible

Check: cruft, Type: source
