[Bug 1701047] Re: Renaming of conf file fails
Of these packages, fonts-guru-extra is the only one that in practice I
see is affected by this bug on a continuously-upgraded system (16.04 ->
16.10 -> 17.04 -> 17.10 -> 18.04), so is the only package I am currently
intending to SRU.

The fix of <https://bugs.debian.org/853848> wasn't accomplished properly. Renamings of conf files weren't addressed in maintainer scripts, upgrades from previous versions fail in this respect, and the package system generates warning messages.
The problem has been reported in Debian, and the purpose of this bug
report is to keep track of the progress.
This config file is broken in xenial and will still be broken on upgrade to bionic, which means the fonts in question will not be available to the system as intended if the user has upgraded.
Because this modifies maintainer scripts there is possibility of introducing a regression that will cause the package to fail to unpack.
