Hmm, I got a bugreport about his regarding lidsadm-2.2.19. I disagree with this
because although lidsadm-2.2.19 is autogenerated it is a system-dependent
conffile, which means it contains the configuration for the package and it
should be different on every machine. Where is the difference if a
conffile is generated using vim or a special tool like lidsadm?
