Package: tomcat7-admin
Version: 7.0.28-4+deb7u4
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,
*** Please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?
        All tomcat servers crash after the auto update via unattended-upgrade
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
        Correct manually our specific owner files and restart tomcat7 service
   * What was the outcome of this action?
        Impossible to start all the tomcat7 services (with JMX  configured)
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
        that the patch don't modify files that don't come from the package.

Details :
        We use a tomcat7 debian installation.
        We modify to use tomcat7:tomcat7 user for the tomcat7 processes
        we want to add JMX access configuration with user/password access -> no 
debian doc found => configuration taken from "official" oracle documentation.
                => put jmxremote.user and jmxremote.password in /etc/tomcat7 
(symlinked to /var/lib/tomcat7/conf for official oracle path conservation)
                => mandatory kmxremote.password = right 600 on the file and 
then we chown tomcat7:tomcat7 the file too.

        We use unattended-upgrade for security patch. This morning -> deploying 
some tomcat7  patch on all serveurs.
        -> In the tomcat7.postinst there is chown -Rh root:(GROUP) on 
/etc/tomcat7 !
        => jmxremote.password misconfigured and tomcat7 don't start... 

Ideas or solutions :
        Modify only files coming from the package.
        Or interesting on how debian want we configure the JMX access, as if we 
take official recommandation it leads to a fatal crash.
