[Resolvconf-devel] Bug#477752: resolvconf: Don't reinstall init script on upgrades

Package: resolvconf
Version: 1.39
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 10.7.3.


Policy 10.7.3 says you must preserve user changes during upgrades, but on
upgrade (or reinstall) the init script level gets changed. I've a
different ordering of the services due to insserv and if you reset the
level on every upgrade, you destroy my settings.

Bye, Jörg.
