Package: bluez
Version: 4.97-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainers,

I'm getting this syslog error when starting bluetoothd, i.e. on startup:
bluetoothd[5100]: Parsing /etc/bluetooth/proximity.conf failed: No such
file or directory

Yes, blueproximity is installed; anyway,
$ dpkg -S proximity.conf
dpkg-query: Kein Pfad gefunden, der auf Muster *proximity.conf* passt

I was a bit confused, did I miss something? Seems that the issue was
solved upstream:

"[PATCH BlueZ] Fix error when proximity config file is missing" ¹

¹ http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.bluez.kernel/15221

But if you like users to keep configuration options in
/etc/bluetooth/proximity.conf, would you please provide a template file?
