unused-debconf-template

All reports of unused-debconf-template for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

Templates which are not used by the package should be removed from the templates file.

This will reduce the size of the templates database and prevent translators from unnecessarily translating the template's text.

In some cases, the template is used but Lintian is unable to determine this. Common causes are:

- the maintainer scripts embed a variable in the template name in order to allow a template to be selected from a range of similar templates (e.g. db_input low start_$service_at_boot)

- the template is not used by the maintainer scripts but is used by a program in the package

- the maintainer scripts are written in perl. lintian currently only understands the shell script debconf functions.

If any of the above apply, please install an override.

Severity: minor, Certainty: possible

Check: debconf, Type: binary, udeb, source

This tag has not been emitted in any package tested by Lintian.
