W maintainer-script-calls-systemctl

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

The maintainer script calls systemctl directly. Actions such as enabling a unit file should be done using deb-systemd-helper so that they work on machines with or without systemd. Starting a service should be done via invoke-rc.d if the service has a corresponding sysvinit script or deb-systemd-invoke if it does not.

If you are using debhelper, please use the systemd debhelper addon, which is provided by debhelper (>= 9.20160709~) | dh-systemd.

Refer to for details.

Severity: normal, Certainty: certain

Check: systemd, Type: binary

Emitted (non-overridden): 28, overridden: 20, total: 48
