[Openstack-devel] Bug#705117: nova-common uses a file in /usr/share/doc in postinst

Package: nova
Version: 2012.1.1-17
Severity: serious


Ansgar just spotted a policy violation. nova-common tries to do:

    if ! [ -e /etc/nova/nova.conf ] ; then
        cp /usr/share/doc/nova-common/nova.conf.dist /etc/nova/nova.conf

which is a policy violation (eg: the file should be stored in
/usr/share/nova-common, not in /usr/share/doc).

Note that this bug isn't present in any OpenStack package in Experimental,
only Nova in SID/Wheezy has the issue.

I'll be fixing this ASAP...
