W su-wrapper-not-su-to-root

All reports of su-wrapper-not-su-to-root for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The menu item or desktop file command uses an su wrapper other than su-to-root. On Debian systems, please use su-to-root -X, which will pick the correct wrapper based on what's installed on the system and the current desktop environment. Using su-to-root is also important for Live CD systems which need to use sudo rather than su. su-to-root permits global configuration to use sudo.

Severity: normal, Certainty: certain

Check: menu-format, Type: binary
