command-with-path-in-maintainer-script

All reports of command-with-path-in-maintainer-script for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The indicated program run in a maintainer script has a prepended path. Programs called from maintainer scripts normally should not have a path prepended. dpkg ensures that the PATH is set to a reasonable value, and prepending a path may prevent the local administrator from using a replacement version of a command for some local reason.

If the path is required to test a program for existence, one of the suggested workarounds in the developer's reference can be used.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 6.1 (Introduction to package maintainer scripts) and Debian Developer's Reference section 6.4 (Best practices for maintainer scripts) for details.
