Severity: normal

        Hi!

 I took a look at the /usr/share/doc/apt/examples/configure-index.gz
file and found something quite interesting and useful in it, which I
tried:
DPkg::Pre-Invoke {"mount -o remount,rw /usr";};
DPkg::Post-Invoke {"mount -o remount,ro /usr";};

 Unfortunately it seems not to work, because the /usr/doc symlink seems
to be proceeded in the postinst, and that seems to be after the
DPkg::Post-Invoke is called.  So, is it possible to put the
DPkg::Post-Invoke _after_ the postinst calls so that this really useful
and interesting feature might work as documented?

 Thanks alot in advance,
Alfie

 Then I am wondering why the symbolic links from /usr/doc/<package> to
/usr/share/doc/<package> are failing because /usr is remounted readonly
already?  Isn't that a thing that is done in the postinst, or is that
even done much later?  According to what the debhelper package does that
_is_ done in the postinst, and it fails, if I remount /usr ro in the
Post-Invoke.

 So please, try to examine that, I really doesn't seem that the
Post-Invoke is done after the postinst.  It's not that the remount
doesn't work - it simply works too soon.

 So long,
Alfie
