Package: yate
Version: 4.1.0-1~dfsg-2
Followup-For: Bug #527900


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 (if it's empty).

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

0m55.1s ERROR: FAIL: Package purging left files on system:
  /var/lib/yate/	 not owned
