If I execute lintian -i xmountains it say to me this:
E: xmountains: manpage-for-x11-binary-in-wrong-directory usr/X11R6/bin/xmountains usr/share/man/man1/xmountains.1.gz
N: Manual pages for binaries which are located in /usr/X11R6/bin
N: be installed below /usr/X11R6/man.
N: Note that normally only packages that are part of X itself and
N: that are using some arcane Imakefiles should actually install
N: into /usr/X11R6/bin.
but in Policy 12.1 it says:
You should install manual pages in nroff source form, in appropriate places
under /usr/share/man. You should only use sections 1 to 9 (see the FHS for more details).
You must not install a preformatted "cat page".
Is this a bug in lintian?
