Hi,

during a test with piuparts I noticed your package removes files that
were installed by another package.
The removed files were already present before the package was installed,
they may have been shipped or created by a dependency.

This was observed on tests from jessie directly to sid as well as from 
stretch to sid.

>From the attached log (scroll to the bottom...):

1m41.4s ERROR: FAIL: debsums reports modifications inside the chroot:
  debsums: missing file 
/usr/share/javascript/codemirror/addon/edit/matchbrackets.js (from 
libjs-codemirror package)
  debsums: missing file 
/usr/share/javascript/codemirror/addon/search/searchcursor.js (from 
libjs-codemirror package)
  debsums: missing file /usr/share/javascript/codemirror/lib/codemirror.css

  debsums: missing file /usr/share/javascript/codemirror/theme/eclipse.css 
(from libjs-codemirror package)

This code from the preinst looks extremely fishy
(I only looked at the diff between -1 and -2):

+    # versions prior to 0.2.3h+dfsg-2 either shipped a copy of codemirror or
+    # symlinks inside the CodeMirror directory. Make sure the directory is
+    # removed so it can be replaces with the symlink.
+    if [ -d 
/usr/share/xul-ext/sieve/chrome/chromeFiles/content/libs/CodeMirror ] ; then
+      rm -rf 
/usr/share/xul-ext/sieve/chrome/chromeFiles/content/libs/CodeMirror
     fi

1.) this sounds like you should use 
    dpkg-maintscript-helper dir_to_symlink ...
2.) there is no version check at all ...

but I still fail to see how this could remove the above files ...


cheers,

Andreas
