Package: nagios3-common
Version: 3.2.3-3
Severity: important
User: debian-qa at lists.debian.org
Usertags: piuparts


during a test with piuparts I noticed your package left unowned
directories on the system after purge, which is a violation of
policy 6.8:


Filing this as important as having a piuparts clean archive is a release
goal since lenny.

If the package would ship this as an empty directory, dpkg would take
care of the creation and removal.

  /var/lib/nagios	 not owned
