All reports of maintainer-script-does-not-check-for-existence-of-installdocs for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The maintainer script calls the install-docs command without checking for existence first. (The doc-base package which provides the command is not marked as "essential" package.)

     if which install-docs > /dev/null; then
       install-docs -i /usr/share/doc-base/<your-package>
