Re: piuparts-MBF: prompting due to modified conffiles which where not modified by the user

So, what do you suggest for this? Of course, this file _is_ a conffile
(i.e. should never be automatically overwritten, so just moving it
over to /var/lib is not just compiling with a different path set). If
I don't automatically upgrade the file, users will end up with a
confused daemon unable and unwilling to move on. How should I proceed
with this?

My understanding is in this situation the correct soloution is not to ship the file in the package at all and then have the maintainer scripts create/edit it on install/upgrade.
