Package: libapache2-mod-python
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---

Purging the package after removal fails due to the missing "python" module for

how to reproduce:
- install the package
- remove it
- purge the configuration

The last step fails due to an exitcode 1 from the post removal script.

The attached patch tolerates a failure of "a2dismod python" and thus allows
to purge the package successfully.

thanks for your work,
