Package: menu
Version: 2.1.5-3
Severity: wishlist

I noticed that menu generates files in /etc automatically, e.g.


/etc should be for configuration files only, not automatically generated files.

The discussion in debian-devel suggests /var/lib/menu as a good place. Though it might make sense to make a symlink to /etc for compatibility reasons.

For the discussion and some background information see my post and the thread on debian-devel

#498590 was the cause for this bug, #64071, and #498590 was closed in 
September 2009, rather at the beginning of the squeeze release cycle. So I'm 
closing this bug now, as probably all packages exposing this bug have been 
rebuild using a newer menu version since then. Also, there is a discussion in 
#699390 to drop menu from the desktop-task...

Lintian maintainers, I recommend you close #498591 with wontfix as well.
