Package: general
Severity: serious

As of Debian Policy Manual version 3.7.2, the use of invoke-rc.d to
run init.d scripts has been made mandatory. Earlier, its use was
strongly recommended.

In most cases the fix should be simple, replace this:
    /etc/init.d/package <action>
with this:
    if which invoke-rc.d >/dev/null 2>&1; then
            invoke-rc.d package <action>
            /etc/init.d/package <action>

On May 13 and 14, I checked all packages in Debian sid, and found
that your package needs to be changed because of this policy change.
This bug is part of a mass-filing to get all such bugs fixed.
