# Bug#61308: [PROPOSAL] Initializing databases by using conffiles.

Package: debian-policy
Version: 3.1.1.1
Severity: wishlist

The following proposal tries to address cases like Bug #34294.

\begin{proposal}
Do not initialize a text database by using the conffile mechanism.
\end{proposal}

Rationale: We should try to reduce prompting to a minimum during upgrades.
99,999% users will always say "No" to dpkg prompt. In this case it is
better not to prompt and assume that "No" is what almost everybody
wants.

I'm looking for seconds for this proposal.

Thanks.
