Package: php-common
Version: 54
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
purge removing the php5 and related deps
   * What was the outcome of this action?
error mail coming from Cron because of the php cronjob still active
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
the removal of /etc/cron.d/php

-- System Information:
Debian Release: stretch(raspbian)
Architecture: arm7

i did a purge remove of php5 on raspbian (stretch), and then i started receiving error notifications mail from Cron. So i discovered that a cronjob was still active in /etc/cron.d/php to check for php sessions; and i had to remove it manually.

I took a quick look at php-common_54_all.deb which provide the file /etc/cron.d/php, indeed is written in the deb conffiles

But i did not found some removal of the /etc/cron.d/php file in postrm or prerm, everything seems related only to the masking of phpsessionclean.timer
