Re: script-with-language-extension

Not sure if fixing it by renaming the files is what you want to do.

I have such a warning in xinetd and honestly I just ignore it because I don't 
think that renaming scripts after they have been there for many years is a 
good idea. Besides that's the upstream name so that's how they will be 
probably called in other distributions too I guess.
