W maintainer-script-has-invalid-update-inetd-options

All reports of maintainer-script-has-invalid-update-inetd-options for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The specified maintainer script seems to call update-inetd(1) with an invalid option combination.

For example, the --group--add and --pattern is only valid without --add.

Whilst these have been ignored in the past they now emit a warning which will become an error in the future, resulting in upgrade/removal failures.

Please correct the call to update-inetd(1).

Refer to the update-inetd(1) manual page,, and for details.

Severity: normal, Certainty: possible

Check: scripts, Type: binary

Emitted (non-overridden): 2, overridden: 0, total: 2

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.
