Package: boinc-client
Version: 6.12.14+dfsg-1
Severity: normal

Today I updated to latest testing version 6.12.14+dfsg-1 and saw following dpkg output during update:

|boinc-client (6.12.14+dfsg-1) wird eingerichtet ...
|Konfigurationsdatei »/etc/boinc-client/cc_config.xml«
| ==> Modifiziert (von Ihnen oder von einem Skript) seit der Installation.
| ==> Paketverteiler hat eine aktualisierte Version herausgegeben.
|   Wie möchten Sie vorgehen? Ihre Wahlmöglichkeiten sind:
|    Y oder I : Die Version des Paket-Betreuers installieren
|    N oder O : Die momentan installierte Version beibehalten
|       D     : Die Unterschiede zwischen den Versionen anzeigen
|       Z     : Eine Shell starten, um die Situation zu begutachten
| Der Standardweg ist das Beibehalten der momentanen Version.

So it seems as if somebody took care of this issue, but unfortunately not completely, so to get boinc-client working correctly still manual rework is necessary. Please correct also the close-tag.

# Set this to 1 to enable advanced scheduling of the BOINC core client and
# all its sub-processes (reduces the impact of BOINC on the system's

# This is the data directory of the BOINC core client.

# This is the location of the BOINC core client, that the init script uses.
