dpkg vanishing conffiles bug (#108587)
Scott, in case you don't know why I'm messing about with dpkg: during
an upgrade from Ubuntu Hoary to Breezy you get a spurious conffile
prompt about xinitrc, which is due (in part) to #108587.
Will you have any time soon to read the mail I sent today to the BTS,
describing what I plan to do ? (The new stuff in Conffiles, etc.)
If you don't stop me I will probably implement this some time in the
coming (working) days and send you a patch against dpkg 1.13.11. If I
do this and no-one tells me it's a bad idea I will also send this
patch into Breezy.
