[Pkg-net-snmp-devel] Bug#692949: libsnmp-perl: copyright file missing after upgrade (policy 12.5)

Package: libsnmp-perl
Version: 5.4.3~dfsg-2.5
Severity: serious
User: debian-qa at lists.debian.org
Usertags: piuparts


a test with piuparts revealed that your package misses the copyright
file after an upgrade from lenny to squeeze to wheezy, which is a violation of
Policy 12.5:

After the upgrade /usr/share/doc/$PACKAGE/ is just an empty directory.

>From the attached log (scroll to the bottom...):
(from 'ls -lad /u/s/d/$PKG' and 'ls -la /u/s/d/$PKG/')

  MISSING COPYRIGHT FILE: /usr/share/doc/libsnmp-perl/copyright
  drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 40 Nov  8 06:36 /usr/share/doc/libsnmp-perl
  total 0
  drwxr-xr-x   2 root root   40 Nov  8 06:36 .
  drwxr-xr-x 106 root root 2260 Nov  8 06:37 ..
