package status test message
unsafe-tmp-usage-in-scripts The test discovered scripts with errors which may be used by a user for damaging important system files. For example if a script uses in its work a temp file which is created in /tmp directory, then every user can create symlinks with the same name (pattern) in this directory in order to destroy or rewrite some system or another user's files. Scripts _must_ _use_ mktemp/tempfile or must use $TMPDIR. mktemp/tempfile is safest. $TMPDIR is safer than /tmp/ because libpam-tmpdir creates a subdirectory of /tmp that is only accessible by that user, and then sets TMPDIR and other variables to that. Hence, it doesn't matter nearly as much if you create a non-random filename, because nobody but you can access it. Found error in /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/servers/log-espeak: $ grep /tmp/ /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/servers/log-espeak #!/bin/sh LOG=/tmp/espeak-$$.log tee $LOG | `dirname $0`/espeak 2>&1 | tee /tmp/espeak-out-$$.log
arch-dep-package-has-big-usr-share The package has a significant amount of architecture-independent data in /usr/share, while it is an architecture-dependent package. This is wasteful of mirror space and bandwidth, as we then end up with multiple copies of this data, one for each architecture. If the data in /usr/share is not architecture-independent, it is a policy violation, and in this case, you should move that data elsewhere.
subdir-in-var-run Found a subdir in /var/run or /var/lock. /var/run and /var/lock may be mounted as temporary filesystems, so the init.d scripts must handle this correctly. This will typically amount to creating any required subdirectories dynamically when the init.d script is run, rather than including them in the package and relying on rpm to create them.
