Wmaintainer-script-sets-alternative-improperly

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.232. That is the most recent version we know about.

The maintainer script calls update-alternatives --set <alternative> foo or update-alternatives --config <alternative> or update-alternatives --set-selections.

This makes it impossible to distinguish between an alternative that's manually set because the user set it and one that's manually set because the package set it.

Refer to the update-alternatives(8) manual page for details.
