I thought about this long and hard. It seems that the best route to keep this from being an issue when switching between -full,-light,-extras is a separate package for those files (nginx-common). Rather than using nginx-common and dealing with the exact same bug (here, not later) I figured we could just use the existing nginx dummy package for the common files.
I just committed the changes required for this to the svn repo. It will no doubt need testing. I will set up a vm tonight to play with the package upgrades to ensure they roll out smoothly. Thanks again for taking the time to both file and elaborate on this issue. -- To UNSUBSCRIBE, email to debian-bugs-dist-requ...@lists.debian.org with a subject of "unsubscribe". Trouble?
