superfluous /etc/network/if-up.d/mountnfs.orig in initscripts

Bug #314772 reported by Timo Aaltonen on 2009-01-07
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
sysvinit (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: sysvinit

The initscripts package has carried an extra mountnfs.orig-script in /etc/network/if-up.d/ since version 2.86.ds1-14.1ubuntu26 (gutsy). Hardy has it, intrepid-> doesn't. It should be cleaned from the package, because it's run in addition to the proper script.

Good idea, but this isn't complete. Since this is a conffile, it will continue to stay around (as an orphaned conffile) with this update. So this additionally needs a preinst snippet to remove the .orig conffile on upgrade to that fixed version (preferably only if it is unmodified). See for a standard recipe.

Even though mountnfs.orig is not listed in conffiles? The preinst already has code to do that, so it's pretty easy to do anyway.

Right, as per our discussion in IRC that's fine. Sorry for the noise. Please go ahead and upload.
