Bug#830102: sitesummary: autopkgtest failure
Control: tags -1 + patch
I had a closer look at the issue, and the problem seem to be related to
bug #760084. The issue is that when sitesummary is installed and pull
in apache2, the apache2 postinst script is executed after the
sitesummary postinst, because only dependencies (and not recommends) are
taken into account when ordering postinst scripts. The end result is
that the apache setup done by the sitesummary postinst script is not
performed, and the CGI script is not made available.
My suggestion for the test to get it working is to purge sitesummary and
reinstall it, after apache2.
This proposed patch should solve the problem.
