Bug#343289: vim-common: doc/vim-common formerly was symlinked to vim but is a directory now

Package: vim-common
Version: 1:6.4-004+1


in previous versions /usr/share/doc/vim-common was a symlink to vim,
this has been reversed in 1:6.4-004+1. Since dpkg cannot deal with
symlinks changing to directories (because tar cannot), this actually
leads to the vim-common doc files still being stored in doc/vim which
itself remains being a directory.

Please make sure to remove the obsolete symlink in preinst. Something
like test -L /usr/share/doc/vim-common && rm /usr/share/doc/vim-common
should do the trick (hopefully).

Thanks for your work & regards
