I agree that this seems overly complicated. I'm not sure exactly how to undo the situation safely for current installs without doing some research and testing. I suppose the maintainer scripts can take whatever is pointed to by the current alternative and copy that into a temporary directory that is then renamed to "/etc/zookeeper/conf" after the alternative is deleted. Thank you for the bug report. Cheers, tony
