Package: rkhunter
Version: 1.3.6-4
Severity: minor

I've got a couple of comments after running rkhunter, hopefully you'll
agree they are bugs :)

* it warns that /sbin/chkconfig has been replaced by a script, but its
  shipped as a (perl) script in debian. Could this be included in
* With etckeeper becoming popular, could the config example include
  /etc/.etckeeper and /etc/.{git,bzr}ignore as comments in
