# As stated in #486702, confirmed by David Paleino <d.paleino at gmail.com>
tags 478659 -reproducible
tags 478659 +confirmed
# #486702 has been reassigned to ucf for fixing, so 478659 has to wait
block 478659 by 486702
# And now: Why do we prompt at all? The file was not modified by the
# user
clone 486702 -1
reassign -1 bash-completion
retitle -1 bash-completion should not show diff if /etc/bash_completion is unmodified
# See policy E.1. Automatic handling of configuration files by `dpkg'
# bash-completion should behave similar, because *every* user will see
# this and will spend some time figuring out what's going on, and it
# will complicate automated/mass installs
severity -1 important
# Btw. a NEWS.Debian file is quite fine, will be shown by
# apt-listchanges etc.
