[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#775385: lightdm: unowned symlink after purge (policy 6.8, 10.8): /etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service

Package: lightdm
Version: 1.10.3-3
Severity: important
User: debian-qa at lists.debian.org
Usertags: piuparts


during a test with piuparts I noticed your package left unowned files on
the system after purge, which is a violation of policy 6.8 (or 10.8):


Filing this as important as having a piuparts clean archive is a release
goal since lenny.

>From the attached log (scroll to the bottom...):

0m34.0s ERROR: FAIL: Package purging left files on system:
  /etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service -> /lib/systemd/system/lightdm.service	 not owned

init-system-helpers which should be responsible for the cleanup is still
installed at purge time, so there sees to be something faulty with the
systemd integration in the packaging.
None of the other display managers has this problem.
