[pkg-lighttpd] Bug#349676: lighttpd: /var/www/index.html overwritten without backup

Package: lighttpd
Version: 1.4.9-3
Severity: important

I don't recall being asked about it when lighttpd was last upgraded,
but it seems that /var/www/index.html was replaced without a debconf
question or a backup being made.

I have apache2 installed, albeit not running, and the above file had
been edited since the apache installation originally put it there.

Although I'm very happy that lighttpd is now being maintained in the
official archive, I'm a bit annoyed to find that my file has been
nuked, and I'm only glad this wasn't on a production system.
