Bug#455197: O: acpid -- Utilities for using ACPI power management

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the acpid package because I cannot agree with the
severity of the Bug report #444666 and I do not have time to maintain a
half broken package. Keeping any broken files in /etc/acpi that are not
shipped upstream will leed to really serious bugs.

The package description is:
 Modern computers support the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI)
 to allow intelligent power management on your system and to query battery and
 configuration status.
 ACPID is a completely flexible, totally extensible daemon for delivering
 ACPI events. It listens on a file (/proc/acpi/event) and when an event
 occurs, executes programs to handle the event. The programs it executes
 are configured through a set of configuration files, which can be
 dropped into place by packages or by the admin.
