It is, sorry. I was using the slink version of lintian (my main
machine is slink based; My home machine is slink + potato's libc
Here's what I get with lintian_1.7:
E: powstatd: unregistered-script-in-etc-init.d /etc/init.d/powerfail
E: powstatd: unregistered-script-in-etc-init.d /etc/init.d/ups-monitor
W: powstatd: FSSTND-dir-in-usr usr/doc/
W: powstatd: FSSTND-dir-in-usr usr/man/
I haven't changed the doc and man directories to `share'. I'm
waiting for the dust to settle on that issue (or should we be
moving man anyway? seems strange if doc doesn't move).

You're the boss. I'll assume my package is okay then. Many,
many thanks for lintian.
