Package: prosody
Version: 0.11.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I just updated to this version today. I was surprised to find my xmpp users
all received certificate warnings, flagging old, expired, self-signed
certificates offered by my system.

On inspection, I found these two symlinks:


had been replaced and were (again) pointing to my crummy self-signed "snake
oil" certificate instead of my current Let's Encrypt-issued certificate.

If these symlinks exist, they should not be overwritten or modified (at
not without warning the administrator).
