I am currenly investigating obsolete conffiles, and I found several
conffiles left around by font packages, eg:
(and many others)
1) Can these be deleted with no consequences (I think so, installing
the package does not event create /etc/defoma). It looks like the code
in the preinst should remove this configuration file, but it was not
removed on my disk (maybe there was a timeframe where the helper
rm_conffile was not correct?).
/etc/fonts/conf.d/ttf-tamil-fonts.conf is a real file, obsolete,
identical to /etc/fonts/conf.avail/90-ttf-tamil-fonts.conf, and there is
a symlink to /etc/fonts/conf.avail/90-ttf-tamil-fonts.conf in
Shouldn't there be some code to remove this file? It is out of order (no
nn- prefix), and may have unintended side-effects...
There are other real files in /etc/fonts/conf.d (I never touched
anything . Should they not be all links to /etc/fonts/conf.avail?
The stars are the files not declared as obsolete by dpkg.
PS: I took some examples, but I can provide the whole list of leftover
files if asked.
