I have asked this question on IRC too, but it likely scrolled out by
now, so I'm turning to the list. I have a piuparts error[1] (see the end
of the file) in the syslog-ng-core package (src:syslog-ng)

| 0m36.3s ERROR: FAIL: Package purging left files on system:
|   /etc/systemd/	 not owned
|   /etc/systemd/system/	 not owned
|   /var/lib/systemd/deb-systemd-helper-masked/	 not owned

 [1]: https://piuparts.debian.org/sid/fail/syslog-ng-core_3.5.1-1.log

As far as I see, I'm using dh-systemd correctly (debian/ stuff in my
repo[2]), yet, files are still left on the system after a purge. My
question is: am I doing something wrong? Should I explicitly add cleanup
code to my postrm to handle purge? Or is another package (dh-systemd /
init-system-helpers) at fault?

Thanks in advance for any pointers.
