Bug#820075: debian-edu-config: fails to purge: rmdir: failed to remove '/var/lib/dovecot': No such file or directory

Package: debian-edu-config
Version: 1.819
Severity: important
User: debian-qa@lists.debian.org
Usertags: piuparts


during a test with piuparts I noticed your package failed to purge.
According to policy 7.2 you cannot rely on the depends being available
during purge, only the essential packages are available for sure.

Filing this as important because a.) it's a clear policy violation (to
not clean up at purge) b.) having a piuparts clean archive is a release
goal since lenny and c.) this package being piuparts buggy blocks
packages depending on it from being tested by piuparts (and thus
possibly the detection of more severe problems).
