Package: open-vm-tools
Version: 2:10.1.0-4449150-1
Severity: minor

Dear maintainer,

starting with upstream version 10.1.0-4449150 (at least this is the
upstream version in
open-vm-tools now ship an udev rule setting the timeout by itself.

This leads to two udev rules doing the same, with the upstream rule
matching a superset of ATTRS.

==> 60-open-vm-tools.rules <==
# VMware SCSI devices Timeout adjustment
# Modify the timeout value for VMware SCSI devices so that
# in the event of a failover, we don't time out.
# See Bug 271286 for more information.

ACTION=="add|change", SUBSYSTEMS=="scsi", ATTRS{vendor}=="VMware  " , 
ATTRS{model}=="Virtual disk    ",   RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'echo 180 

# VMWare Virtual Sockets permissions

==> 99-vmware-scsi-udev.rules <==
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEMS=="scsi", ATTRS{vendor}=="VMware*" , 
ATTRS{model}=="Virtual disk*", RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'echo 180 
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEMS=="scsi", ATTRS{vendor}=="VMware*" , 
ATTRS{model}=="VMware Virtual S", RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'echo 180 

We noticed that because our local system management sets this to a
different value in a rule that gets sorted before 99-vmware-scsi-udev.

I propose to drop the Debian specific rule and install the upstream one
at the previous location (with priority < 99 to be able to override if
