Hi,

during a test with piuparts I noticed that your package ships a conffile
that is modified by the postinst script. This is forbidden by the
policy, see
http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-files.html#s-config-files
  "The easy way to achieve this behavior is to make the configuration
  file a conffile. [...] This implies that the default version will be
  part of the package distribution, and must not be modified by the
  maintainer scripts during installation (or at any other time)."

The mishandled conffile is /etc/logrotate.d/tomcat6


Cheers,

Andreas
