converted config file ?
I have a problem with my wwwoffle package:
it has a config file /etc/wwwoffle.conf.
When installing I try to convert existing config files with a shipped
config file converter and only if that fails because it is the first
install of wwwoffle, I copy the example conf file from the /usr/doc.
The problem is now, that I have mark the /etc/wwwoffle.conf as "configfile"
in the ...../debian/conffiles file. But when building, dpkg complains that
the named conffile is not there, what is quit right, since while shipping,
the file isn't in /etc, but in /usr/doc...
What should I do now ?
simply let dpkg handle the overwriting/not-installing of the config file
and mark the file in debian/conffiles
did not mark it in debian/conffiles and let postinst handle the file.
Both will earn me some bug reports :-)
