Epreinst-interpreter-without-predepends

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

The package contains a preinst maintainer script that uses an unusual and non-essential interpreter but does not declare a pre-dependency on the package that provides this interpreter.

preinst scripts should be written using only essential interpreters to avoid additional dependency complexity. Please do not add a pre-dependency without following the policy for doing so (Policy section 3.5).

Please refer to Debian Policy Manual section 7.2 for details.
