Lintian ReportsBETA


The specified systemd service file declares a PIDFile= that references /var/run.

/var/run is now merely a symlink pointing to /run and thus it is now considered best practice that packages use /run directly.

Please update the specified service file.

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit f5107b6. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check systemd.
