Emaintainer-script-calls-init-script-directly

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

This script apparently runs an init script directly rather than using invoke-rc.d. The use of invoke-rc.d to invoke the /etc/init.d/* initscripts instead of calling them directly is required. Maintainer scripts may call the init script directly only if invoke-rc.d is not available.

Please refer to Debian Policy Manual section 9.3.3.2 for details.
