Package: simba
Version: 0.8.4-5
Severity: important
Usertags: piuparts


during a test with piuparts I noticed your package failed to purge due
to a command not found. According to policy 7.2 you cannot rely on the
depends being available during purge, only the essential packages are
available for sure.

Please see the manpages ucf(1), ucfr(1) and the example maintainer
scripts under /usr/share/doc/ucf/examples/ for correct usage of ucf.

Filing this as important because a.) it's a clear policy violation (to
not clean up at purge) b.) having a piuparts clean archive is a release
goal since lenny and c.) this package being piuparts buggy blocks
packages depending on it from being tested by piuparts (and thus
possibly the detection of more severe problems).
