Upstream bug:


Debian Policy section 9.1.1 now tells us to use /run and /run/lock instead of /var/run and /var/lock. I see 55 uses of /var/run and 1 of /var/lock in browser:trunk/debathena alone.

"Good thing we're only compliant with 3.9.1"

Do we have any idea of when the compatibility symlinks will vanish, out of curiosity?

There’s no urgency here.


          `/run' is allowed as an exception to the FHS and replaces
          `/var/run'.  `/run/lock' replaces `/var/lock'.  The FHS
          requirements for the older directories apply to these directories
          as well.  Backward compatibility links will be maintained and
          packages need not switch to referencing `/run' directly yet.
          Files in `/run' should be stored in a temporary file system.
