[Pkg-ofed-devel] Bug#579193: srptools: Debconf abuse

Package: srptools
Severity: normal

The note displayed when installing this package is generally
considered as debconf abuse.

Using debconf notes to warn about specific package configuration
tricks or behaviour and therefore interrupt installs is strongly
discouraged by both the Developer's Reference and the debconf
development documentation itself.

For the type of warning given in this debconf note, you should use
README.Debian instead.
