Package: torbrowser-launcher
Version: 0.2.6-3
Severity: important
User: debian-qa at lists.debian.org
Usertags: obsolete-conffile adequate

Dear Maintainer,
First of all thank you for continuing to maintain tor in debian. You
provide an invaluable service.

Adequate reports obsolete-conffile

> adequate torbrowser-launcher
torbrowser-launcher: obsolete-conffile

Maybe you could use what pabs (Paul Wise) did in #815563, in that the
proper thing to do would be -

Use the dpkg-maintscript-helper support provided by dh_installdeb to
remove such similar obsolete conffiles on upgrade

Also https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-files.html#s-config-files

You can also see manpage of dh_installdeb vid debhelper package which
is the same thing.

I ran the same command as he did -

> pkg=torbrowser-launcher ; adequate $pkg ; dpkg-query -W -f='${Conffiles}\n' $pkg | grep obsolete
torbrowser-launcher: obsolete-conffile
caef3e741b6d0113316b4b2eebeb76b4 obsolete

You could potentially use




All of the bugs which are resolved therein are the same obsolete
conffile issues.

Hope the above helps in getting the above fixed.
