Bug#553280: defoma: read-in-maintainer-script postinst:20

Package: defoma
Version: 0.11.10-1
Severity: serious
User: lintian-maint@debian.org
Usertags: read-in-maintainer-script

 This maintainer script appears to use read to get information from the
 user. Prompting in maintainer scripts must be done by communicating through a
 program such as debconf which conforms to the Debian Configuration management
 specification, version 2 or higher.
 Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 3.9.1 (Prompting in maintainer scripts)
 for details.
,----[ 3.9.1 Prompting in maintainer scripts ]
| Package maintainer scripts may prompt the user if necessary. Prompting must be
| done by communicating through a program, such as debconf, which conforms to the
| Debian Configuration Management Specification, version 2 or higher.
| Packages which are essential, or which are dependencies of essential packages,
| may fall back on another prompting method if no such interface is available when
| they are executed.
| The Debian Configuration Management Specification is included in the
| debconf_specification files in the debian-policy package.
