I see your point now: the files were moved from the 'roundcube'
package to 'roundcube-core' package. In this case the package should
not declare it owns these files.
The logic is that for any given package, the command "dpkg -L
PKG-NAME" will list the files and ALL of them should exist even if
empty. That's my opinnion. For example if you prefer to keep the file
'/etc/default/roundcube' it should add a comment that explains that is
NOT in use and someone should modify '/etc/default/roundcube-core'.


PS: I run into this when looking for something else. I'll open another
bug report for that.
