Source: bacula
Version: 5.2.6+dfsg-9.3
Severity: serious

The main configuration files (bacula-{dir,sd,fd}.conf, bconsole.conf,
bat.conf) in the bacula packages aren't registered as belonging to their
respective packages. This leads to the following problem:

Due to the restructuring of the packaging (which happened in version
7.4.3+dfsg-3), when upgrading to the packages 7.4.3+dfsg-3 or later, the
conffile /etc/bacula/bacula-dir.conf will be deleted when the obsoleted
package "bacula-director-common" is purged. This is an error as the file
should be owned by the new package "bacula-director".
