 Gah! Sad to hear this. I think that for some reason you're not using
latest zaptel from SVN. During some days a zaptel-source.modass file
existed in SVN which was installed as an override for m-a. I filled a
bug which was fixed the other day, so I changed back to don't ship that
overrides file and depend on m-a >=3D 0.8.1

 They are there because you can select them and let m-a install source
package if needed. That is the way that m-a a-i module works. For that
it needs to have first a file telling m-a which packages it does need to
install (using apt).

  I am not sure about this. But taking a look at the config file, and
how criptic it is, I don't think we loose a lot by putting it
in /usr/share/doc and telling in README.Debian to copy it over to /etc
if desired... But I would like to hear more comments.

  Does this need to be in a separate source package, or can we include
it with zaptel?
