extensions/Echo - file permissions trigger debian lintian warnings
Closed, ResolvedPublic


0) Context

DEB packages of mediawiki and many of its extensions, are prepared as part of the WP-MIRROR project.

  1. Lintian

During the build process, lintian performs a great number of sanity checks, including seeing if each file has file permissions appropriate to its file type.

When lintian sees a non-executable file with 755 permissions, rather than 644, lintian will throw a warning like:

W: wp-mirror-mediawiki: executable-not-elf-or-script usr/share/wp-mirror-mediawiki/extensions/Echo/includes/api/ApiEchoMarkSeen.php

  1. Files which should have permissions set to 644
