Hi,

since I noticed it in choose-mirror and it just came up on
irc://irc.debian.org/#debian-devel:

18:52 < Manoj> and packages should not test for root in the clean target; if it
        fails, the user knows what to do


choose-mirror runs dh_testroot in clean.

MfG
	Goswin

Quoting debian policy:

          The `clean' target may need to be invoked as root if `binary' has
          been invoked since the last `clean'

> choose-mirror runs dh_testroot in clean.

So do most packages in Debian. If you disagree with this, get policy changed
to not allow binary to leave any files behind, when run as root, that can
only be deleted by root.
