file permissions cause lintian warnings
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Dear Sir or Madam,

0) Context

DEB packages of `mediawiki' and many of its extensions, are prepared as part of the WP-MIRROR project (see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wp-mirror).

  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-extensions: executable-not-elf-or-script usr/share/wp-mirror-mediawiki/extensions/TimedMediaHandler/COPYING

  1. Files which should have permissions set to 644

TimedMediaHandler/COPYING
TimedMediaHandler/TimedMediaHandler.i18n.php
TimedMediaHandler/handlers/WAVHandler/WAVHandler.php

  1. Technical details

DEB standards version: 3.9.6
GIT branch: wmf/1.24wmf22

Sincerely Yours,
Kent


Version: master
Severity: enhancement
