[Piuparts-devel] Use of dpkg-force-confdef in SVN

I didn't think it would be appropriate to submit a bug for a problem
in SVN, so I'm reporting the issue this way.

Using --dpkg-force-confdef doesn't work (or at least it will break the
next argument passed to piuparts) since when providing the option in
the command line, the proper action to use is not defined. The
attached patch will fix this.

There's a typo in the description of the option too. This patch fixes that.

Also, the '--force-confdef' option should be defined in apt.conf as
well when necessary. This patch also will place the proper option in

If the patch should be split up, let me know.
