#2403: pyosmium installs malformed path

 Priority:  normal     |   Milestone:  OSGeoLive15.0
Component:  OSGeoLive  |  Resolution:
 Keywords:  python     |
Comment (by Bas Couwenberg):

 The path is not malformed.

 The scripts are installed in `/usr/lib/<package>` to not have `library-
 package-name-for-application` lintian issues, and to build both python2 &
 python3 versions from the same source back when python2 was still


 The `pyosmium` package provides the executables in `/usr/bin` which are
 just symlinks to the preferred version in `/usr/lib/<package>`.

 There is no install script for pyosmium which suggests it's installed as a
 dependency for another package. `install_osm.sh` could also install the
 `pyosmium` package if users need its tools.
