W maintainer-script-should-not-use-update-alternatives-set

All reports of maintainer-script-should-not-use-update-alternatives-set for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

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.
