maintainer-script-without-set-e

All reports of maintainer-script-without-set-e for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

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.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.4 (Scripts) for details.
