Package: scsh-0.6
Version: 0.6.7-1
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 9.1.2

   Quoting policy 9.1.2:
     Since `/usr/local' can be mounted read-only from a remote server,
     these directories must be created and removed by the `postinst' and
     `prerm' maintainer scripts and not be included in the `.deb' archive.
     These scripts must not fail if either of these operations fail.

   However scsh-0.6's postinst script tries to remove directories from
/usr/local/lib/scsh/modules without checking for errors.
