Package: apache
Version: 1.3.33-6sarge2
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 7.2.


 Citing from the policy:

,----------------------> policy section 7.2. <----------------------
| Note, however, that the `postrm' cannot rely on any non-essential
| packages to be present during the `purge' phase.
`----------------------> policy section 7.2. <----------------------

 The postrm fails when ucf isn't present. This might e.g. happen (like
it did for me) when the package is removed, and purged on later time
after being sure the old config from apache isn't needed anymore for
transition to apache2.

 Pretty please fix that for the next point release.  I looked at least in
apache2 in etch and it doesn't seem to use ucf anymore, though it would
fail if update-rc.d isn't present, and that is in a non-essential
package, too (though pulled in through pre-depends from sysvinit, so can
be waved, IMHO).

Version: 1.3.34-4

The version in sid only calls ucf if the binary can be found
(determined with `which`). I think this bug is thus closed.
