Pmaintainer-script-without-set-e

Tag versions

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

The maintainer script passes -e to the shell on the #! line rather than using set -e in the body of the script. This is fine for normal operation, but if the script is run by hand with sh /path/to/script (common in debugging), -e will not be in effect. It's therefore better to use set -e in the body of the script.

Please refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.4 for details.
