Package: pki-base
Version: 10.2.6+git20160317-1
Severity: serious
User: debian-qa at lists.debian.org
Usertags: piuparts


during a test with piuparts I noticed your package failed to install,
remove (but not purge), and install again.
Before the second installation the package is in config-files-remaining
state. The configuration is remaining from the last version that was
successfully configured - which is the same version that is going to be
installed again.

Like a plain failure on initial install this makes the package too buggy
for a release, thus the severity.
