Re: Bug#19031: lintian: linitian -h fails with no help message
Umm, I think lintian used to have a conffile, namely:
/etc/lintianrc. I notice that in the latest version that there is no
conffile declared, and, in fact, /etc does not even figure in the
As a matter of policy, I think any package that used to have a
conffile but does not anymore should take care of that in the
postinst (as the person about it, and removbe it; or move it to
Ex-Conffile.bak, so that one knows it is ok to remove it.
In This particular case, eihter declare /etc/linitanrc as a
conffile, or pay no attention to it at all in the program, and remove
it in the postinst.
Feel free to move this to the Policy list about actions
required after dropping a config file. (If the ex config files is not
handled in the postinst, it shall hang around, clutttering up /etc
with files that belong to no package)
