Bug#848347: don't mess with gosa.conf on package upgrades

Hi Petter, hi Holger,

users can edit files in /etc and this will make dpkg prompt, yes.

I guess my question was unclear.  I am not talking about users editing
files in /etc/, but Gosa admins using the web interface to configure
Gosa and the web service modifying files in /etc/ behind the scene.  If
so, this causes conffile questions which confuses the people who never
modified the conffile manually.

Is Gosa capable of modifying gosa.conf in /etc/ from the web interface?

please study the gosa.conf shipped in d-e-c source package (etc/gosa/gosa.conf). Grep for $GOSAPWD. This file in d-e-c is a template file by design and not the final gosa.conf that gets used on the running TJENER. The gosa.conf on a running TJENER gets finalized by ldap-debian-edu-install.

If people (by mistake, by lack of understanding) overwrite /etc/gosa/gosa.conf on d-e-c bin:package upgrade, they have a gosa.conf as found in debian-edu-config, i.e. the template file containing the $GOSAPWD variable. So... suddenly their TJENER has the gosa.conf template file, not the one that is working on their TJENER. GOsa suddenly is unusable.
