Bug Description

Check if /opt installation is correct.

our package should install most files in /opt/extras.ubuntu.com/<packagename>. This includes all libraries, binaries, and configuration files. [Note: This is different from the standard requirements for Debian/Ubuntu packages, and will produce several lintian warnings for 'dir-or-file-in-opt', which you can ignore.] There are several exceptions to this general rule:

 * The standard files in /usr/share/doc/<packagename> are permitted, such as copyright, changelog, and examples.
 * The .desktop file is installed in the standard location /usr/share/applications, but must have the prefix 'extras-' added to its
    name. Example: extras-foobar.desktop for a package named foobar.

One thing I'm not sure about are these files:
 - usr/share/python/runtime.d/*.rtupdate
