unmerged-usr

The named file is being installed in a legacy location. Many competing distributions install this file under /usr. Debian would like to do the same, but the best way to get there is presently unclear.

Please coordinate with the release team before you change this path to the new location. There is a growing body of evidence that uncoordinated action by individual package maintainers or teams may not be the best path forward.

Debian's Technical Committee voted on February 1, 2021 that the bookworm release should support only the merged-usr root filesystem layout, thus dropping support for the non-merged-usr layout.

For more information please consult:
