Re: Removing dbconfig support ?

hi there,

(for future reference dbconfig-common-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org is
probably the proper place for this type of discussion).

one alternative i would suggest exploring is keeping dbconfig-common for
the database/database-user creation (and maybe initial SQL bootstrap),
and leave the "upgrade" task to the application if the app provides
better support for that.  for example, this is what is done in the
cacti package, which also has some fairly complicated/robust upgrade
tasks between versions.
