[Pkg-swan-devel] Bug#866324: strongswan-swanctl: Install empty directories that ‘swanctl --load-all’ expects

Package: strongswan-swanctl
Version: 5.5.1-4
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Whenever strongswan-swanctl.service is started, it logs warnings like:

  “opening directory '/etc/swanctl/x509' failed: No such file or directory”

I believe that, similar to how the strongswan-starter package installs
empty directores that are scanned by the charon daemon
(‘/etc/ipsec.d/cacerts’, etc.), that the strongswan-swanctl package
should also have it's dependent directores installed.

This would eliminate the [harmless] log messages and also aid in
discovery for and admins setting up strongswan-swanctl for the first
