Package: dpkg

This package appears to violate Debian Policy; section 2.3.8
("Maintainer scripts") of the current Policy Manual states:

"Any necessary prompting should almost always be confined to the
post-installation script, and should be protected with a conditional
so that unnecessary prompting doesn't happen if a package's
installation fails and the postinst is called with abort-upgrade,
abort-remove or abort-deconfigure."

This bug report was produced automatically and there is a small chance
that it is erroneous. My apologies should this be the case.

Giuliano Procida.
