On a couple of Debathena machines I use:

Zephyr discussion reminded me that this is due to  a bug in dpkg regarding diverted conffiles that's been fixed in dpkg 1.15. Jaunty and Lenny both still have 1.14, and we more or less still care about them, so we should consider adding code in auto-update to clean these up appropriately.

  • Milestone set to The Distant Future

This is not a useful description of anything.

comment:2 Changed 11 years ago by geofft

  • Priority changed from major to minor
  • Description modified (diff)
  • Summary changed from What's with all these .debathena-orig.dpkg-new files? to auto-update should clean up .debathena-orig.dpkg-new files

Fair enough. Description changed.

comment:3 Changed 11 years ago by andersk

Um, are the .dpkg-new files really the ones that should be cleaned up?

comment:4 Changed 9 years ago by jdreed

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix

By waiting long enough, we successfully avoided caring about dpkg << 1.15.
