Lintian Reports

W uses-dpkg-database-directly

All reports of uses-dpkg-database-directly for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The listed file or maintainer script appears to access the internal database(s) of dpkg.

The entire dpkg database, its layout and files are an internal interface and no program or package should be accessing it, other than dpkg itself and the suite of dpkg tools.

Whilst the files may be editable by an admin, that's a supported (but unrecommended) feature reserved for humans and not for automatic tools.

Refer to https://wiki.debian.org/DpkgConffileHandling for details.

Severity: normal, Certainty: possible

Check: files, Type: binary, udeb
