Lintian Reports

W maintainer-script-empty

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

The maintainer script doesn't seem to contain any code other than comments and boilerplate (set -e, exit statements, and the case statement to parse options). While this is harmless in most cases, it is probably not what you wanted, may mean the package will leave unnecessary files behind until purged, and may even lead to problems in rare situations where dpkg would fail if no maintainer script was present.

If the package currently doesn't need to do anything in this maintainer script, it shouldn't be included in the package.

Severity: minor, Certainty: certain

Check: scripts, Type: binary

Emitted (non-overridden): 38, overridden: 4, total: 42

The package names link to the relevant maintainer page and the corresponding report for the source package. The links go to the full maintainer report page, which includes info and experimental tags and overridden tags, rather than the default page that shows only errors and warnings.
