Bug#553140: xfonts-intl-phonetic: maintainer-script-calls-init-script-directly postinst:23 than using invoke-rc.d. The use of invoke-rc.d to invoke the /etc/init.d/* initscripts instead of calling them directly is required. Maintainer scripts may call the init script directly only if invoke-rc.d is not available.

Package: xfonts-intl-phonetic
Version: 1.2.1-7
Severity: serious
Justification: This script apparently runs an init script directly rather
User: lintian-maint@debian.org
Usertags: maintainer-script-calls-init-script-directly

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section (Running initscripts) for details.

,----[ Running initscripts ]
| The program invoke-rc.d is provided to make it easier for package maintainers to
| properly invoke an initscript, obeying runlevel and other locally-defined
| constraints that might limit a package's right to start, stop and otherwise
| manage services. This program may be used by maintainers in their packages'
| scripts.
| The package maintainer scripts must use invoke-rc.d to invoke the /etc/init.d/*
| initscripts, instead of calling them directly.
| By default, invoke-rc.d will pass any action requests (start, stop, reload,
| restart...) to the /etc/init.d script, filtering out requests to start or
| restart a service out of its intended runlevels.
| Most packages will simply need to change:
|      /etc/init.d/<package>
|      	      <action>
| in their postinst and prerm scripts to:
|      	if which invoke-rc.d >/dev/null 2>&1; then
|      		invoke-rc.d package <action>
|      	else
|      		/etc/init.d/package <action>
|      	fi
| A package should register its initscript services using update-rc.d before it
| tries to invoke them using invoke-rc.d. Invocation of unregistered services may
| fail.
| For more information about using invoke-rc.d, please consult its man page
| invoke-rc.d(8).
