Wmaintainer-script-should-not-use-dpkg-maintscript-helper

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.24. That is the most recent version we know about.

The maintainer script seems to make manual calls to the dpkg-maintscript-helper(1) utility.

Please use package.maintscript files instead; the dh_installdeb(1) tool will do some basic validation of some of the commands listed in this file to catch common mistakes.

Please refer to the dpkg-maintscript-helper(1) manual page and the dh_installdeb(1) manual page for details.
