Yes. I only noticed the problem on a machine I did not updated from cdd-common
0.2 to 0.3 in my development process. If you have installed cdd-common 0.2
on a machine the postinst script of the debian-med tools (version 0.6 which
depends on cdd-common 0.2) failed because the tools from cdd-common 0.2
were just removed and tried the new postinst script which depended from a
config file in cdd-common 0.3 which was not yet installed.
We are only talking about stuff which was in testing before. Stable is
not concerned. So it is just for the sake of a smooth upgrade
one version in testing to another one.
