Re: Bug #583585 dpkg-maintscript-helper


And thanks for the feedback, it's really useful. I'm working on it. In
the meanwhile, I have a question:

I'm trying to prepare the test case for my modifications to
dpkg-maintscript-helper, but if I invoke the script with its name in the
test's maintainer scripts, of course it invokes my system's version,
which doesn't integrate the changes, and so the operation I want to test
is not supported (that is, dpkg-maintscript-helper supports <my-op>
returns with error).

I thought to make a local "hack" by invoking the modified script in the
source code. Is there a smarter way to do it?
