E maintainer-script-calls-init-script-directly

All reports of maintainer-script-calls-init-script-directly for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

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.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section (Running initscripts) for details.

Severity: serious, Certainty: certain
