E init.d-script-sourcing-without-test

All reports of init.d-script-sourcing-without-test for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The given /etc/init.d script seems to be sourcing an /etc/default/ file without checking for its existence first. Files in /etc/default/ can be deleted by the administrator at any time, and init scripts are required to handle the situation gracefully. For example:

     [ -r /etc/default/foo ] && . /etc/default/foo

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 9.3.2 (Writing the scripts) for details.

Severity: serious, Certainty: possible
