[Letsencrypt-devel] Bug#814052: should delete .well-known/acme-challenge when it's done with it

Package: letsencrypt
Version: 0.2.0-1
Severity: normal

Running letsencrypt creates  .well-known/acme-challenge/ in the web
root. After it's done, this directory is left, empty. It would be better
for both directories to be deleted, unless something else happens to be
in them.

It violates least surprise for a directory that is essentially
an implementation detail to be left hanging around when it's no longer
