Sorry for the late reply, but you misstyped my e-mail (puparazzo instead
of pupazzoo)
so I managed to see your mail just now.

Ops, just a leftover of a patch that was needed in versions < 1.0.8.
in svn trunk.

I reread the old threads on debian-mentors, and given that there is no
prior package and
www-data is in base-passwd, dpkg-statoverride is not needed (although
[1] seems to
imply that dpkg-statoverride should be used everytime a permission is
changed in postinst)

So I removed the postinst change and changed dh_fixperms appropriately
in trunk. Thanks for noticing and let me know if you'd like me to upload
a 1.0.8-2 to mentors.
