W command-with-path-in-maintainer-script

All reports of command-with-path-in-maintainer-script for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The indicated program run in a maintainer script has a prepended path. Programs called from maintainer scripts normally should not have a path prepended. dpkg ensures that the PATH is set to a reasonable value, and prepending a path may prevent the local administrator from using a replacement version of a command for some local reason.

If the path is used to test a program for existence, please use if which $program > /dev/null; then ….

If you intend to override this tag, please make sure that you are in control of the installation path of the according program and that you won't forget to change this maintainer script, too, if you ever move that program around.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 6.1 (Introduction to package maintainer scripts), Debian Developer's Reference section 6.4 (Best practices for maintainer scripts),,, and for details.

Severity: normal, Certainty: certain

Check: scripts, Type: binary

Emitted (non-overridden): 214, overridden: 28, total: 242

The package names link to the relevant maintainer page and the corresponding report for the source package. The links go to the full maintainer report page, which includes info and experimental tags and overridden tags, rather than the default page that shows only errors and warnings.
