Esymlink-target-in-tmp

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.232. That is the most recent version we know about.

Packages must not set links with targets pointing into /tmp or /var/tmp. The File Hierarchy Standard specifies that such files may be removed by the administrator and that programs may not depend on any files in /tmp being preserved across invocations, which combined mean that it makes no sense to ship files in these directories.

Refer to Filesystem Hierarchy Standard and Filesystem Hierarchy Standard for details.
