I checked scandetd, it seems that it reffers to a very old
version of the policy.. 3.1.1
Don't know if in the paths in this policy and the FHS were
different.
But it seems that the scandetd as some other bugs (including
an easy to fix FTBFS). Does someone know if Bradley Alexander
<storm@debian.org> is active? Otherwise I will provide an
NMU.
Regards Nico
