maintainer-script-does-not-check-for-existence-of-installdocs

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.)

For example, use the following code in your maintainer script: if which install-docs > /dev/null; then install-docs -i /usr/share/doc-base/<your-package> fi
