I was asked to remove them and told they were no longer necessary for
one of my packages, but now I can't find it where that was. (I think
it was the denyhosts review, but that ticket seems to be missing from
bugzilla completely for whatever reason.)
Honestly I don't fully understand the issue so don't take what I wrote
as the way things have to be.
One of the scriptlets in question was:
if [ "$1" -eq "0" ]; then
/usr/bin/pear uninstall --nodeps --ignore-errors --register-only \
I'll speculate that the --ignore-errors option means that pear will
never return a non-zero exit status and hence the "|| :" is not needed
to ensure that the scriptlet always "succeeds".
