I left this out of the patch.

_Description: Former installation of GNUnet detected
 Since there are important changes in this version, the installer
 will need to modify the GNUnet configuration file (/etc/gnunet.conf).
 .
 The installation process will backup /etc/gnunet.conf to
 /etc/gnunet.conf.old, and will automatically build a new configuration
 file.
 .
 Every personal settings will be preserved as much as possible.

# Obsolete, should be removed
Template: gnunet-daemon/failed
Type: note
_Description: Warning
 For some obscure reason, the installer have failed to discover
 the configuration settings in /etc/gnunet.conf.
 .
 The old configuration file will be moved to /etc/gnunet.conf.old.
 .
 Since some changes are *mandatory* in this file, a
 fresh default configuration file will now be installed
 .
 Please take a look and make necessary changes in it if needed after
 installation.

Template: gnunet-daemon/prior_07

_Description: Upgrade from a version prior to 0.7.0
 It seems that you are upgrading GNUnet from a version prior to 0.7.x.
 GNUnet 0.7.x introduced new configuration files and a new database
 storage format which is not compatible with versions prior to 0.7.x.
 .
 GNUnet cannot convert your database format to the new format.
 .
 Your database storage will be automatically moved to /var/lib/GNUnet.prior07,
 and the gnunet package will build a new empty storage for you.
 .
 Your /etc/gnunet.conf file will also be moved to /etc/gnunet.conf.prior07
 and replaced by /etc/gnunetd.conf which you can modify later by running
 "gnunet-setup -d -c /etc/gnunetd.conf", as root.
