Bug#235866: marked as done (lintian: False positives: postrm-does-not-call-updatemenus/postinst-does-not-call-updatemenus)



reopen 235866
thanks

If you didn't understand the explaination: that's because I wanted to
close an totally different lintian bug with it :)

Sorry, lintian has too many bugs, *sigh*, and that's what we're trying
to solve...
