[Pkg-emacsen-addons] Bug#798701: elpa-company: unowned directory after purge: /usr/share/emacs24/site-lisp/elpa/

Package: elpa-company
Version: 0.8.12-2
Severity: important
User: debian-qa at lists.debian.org
Usertags: piuparts


during a test with piuparts I noticed your package left unowned
directories on the system after purge, which is a violation of
policy 6.8:


Filing this as important as having a piuparts clean archive is a release
goal since lenny.

If the package would ship this as an empty directory, dpkg would take
care of the creation and removal (if it's empty).

>From the attached log (scroll to the bottom...):

1m40.2s ERROR: FAIL: Package purging left files on system:
  /usr/share/emacs24/site-lisp/elpa/	 not owned

This bug should probably be fixed in the respective packaging helpers
