A bug is nothing bad, it's just an id to track things... Also, you ignored a quite significant part of Adams mail: On Mittwoch, 5.

So, I'd also propose to revert this in base-files _and_ then also fix it in debootstrao for jessie. BTW, I also fail to see why this change in base-files is _needed_ _now_ at all... Not surprisingly, just saying Adams proposal is insane didnt really convince me. OTOH, I too can see the problems pointed out by him... cheers, Holger
