Meaning of MAINTAINER SCRIPT

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

One of the scripts (preinst, prerm, postinst, postrm) that may be included in a debian binary package. These scripts may create and/or remove symlinks, files or directories that, for some reason, could not be done directly by dpkg. Maintainer scripts frequently create or update the symlinks in the /etc/rc?.d directories and start, stop, or restart daemons.
