Package: rootskel-gtk
Version: 1.16
Severity: serious
User: lintian-maint@debian.org
Usertags: file-in-usr-local

Justification: The package installs a file in /usr/local/... which is not allowed.

The package should not be looking into /usr/loca/etc, anyway. The site admin
already has a location to add site specific configuration: /etc.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 9.1.2 (Site-specific programs) for details. 

,----[ 9.1.2 Site-specific programs ]
| As mandated by the FHS, packages must not place any files in /usr/local, either
| by putting them in the file system archive to be unpacked by dpkg or by
| manipulating them in their maintainer scripts.
| However, the package may create empty directories below /usr/local so that the
| system administrator knows where to place site-specific files. These are not
| directories in /usr/local, but are children of directories in /usr/local. These
| directories (/usr/local/*/dir/) should be removed on package removal if they are
| empty.

 rootskel-gtk - Additions for graphical installs to skeleton root filesystem (deb (udeb)
Closes: 552584
 rootskel-gtk (1.17) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Upgrade to debhelper v7.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Remove no longer needed Lintian override for missing Standards-
     Version field.
   * No longer create the /usr/local/etc->/etc symlink. It was added to
     suppress a message on VT1 when directfb is loaded, but that is no longer
     displayed because we now set the 'quiet' option in /etc/directfbrc.
     Closes: #552584.
