these are diverted
debsums (2.0.49) unstable; urgency=low
* when querying dpkg-divert include the user specified root filesystem
in --admindir (Closes: #632463)
piatti is running 2.0.48+nmu3

I'm running a locally modified debsums from wheezy here with two patches
* correct symlink lookup (debsums --root escapes the chroot and looks up
files in the host system which may have different content ... #689202)
* ignore obsolete conffiles (#689508, local HACK)
and that solved the debsums issues for me
For #689202 I could do a NMU, but unfortunately for #689508 I cant offer
a nice clean solution. Then we could get debsums unblocked, into wheezy
and backport it and finally install it on piatti.
Or we could add a modified copy of debsums to piuparts, only to be used
when running from git as on piatti ...
