Bug#397886: apache2.2-common: non wanted behaviour during upgrade: charset MUST not be created without user consent

I assume my point of view. I think I'm not alone.

I'm upgrading, but maybe there is a problem in the correct sense upgrade
was meant by dpkg at this very moment:

2006-11-09 16:47:08 install apache2.2-common <none> 2.2.3-3

because :

2006-11-09 16:47:01 status installed apache2-common 2.0.55-4.1
2006-11-09 16:47:02 remove apache2-common 2.0.55-4.1 2.0.55-4.1
2006-11-09 16:47:02 status half-configured apache2-common 2.0.55-4.1
2006-11-09 16:47:02 status half-installed apache2-common 2.0.55-4.1
2006-11-09 16:47:03 status config-files apache2-common 2.0.55-4.1
2006-11-09 16:47:03 status config-files apache2-common 2.0.55-4.1

Because it has been removed and then installed, whereas upgraded, in
this cas the postinst would have done its work like you stated earlier.
