G'day Raphael,

You seem to be correct on the md5sums entries.

However, you're doing much better than I am because I don't have any files in /etc/xdg/liberty-eiffel

% debsums -e liberty-eiffel-core-libs                         
debsums: missing file /etc/xdg/liberty-eiffel/ (from liberty-eiffel-core-libs package)

The directory /etc/xdg/liberty-eiffel is being created it's just empty.

The config file appears to get an encouraging mention in /var/lib/dpkg/status:

Package: liberty-eiffel-core-libs
Status: install ok installed
Version: 2016~dev~rc1
 /etc/xdg/liberty-eiffel/ c083906581c34d735b8051bf19690b71

All other files are installed as expected.

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Can anyone else report a successful or otherwise install of the RC packages?

I am far from understanding debian packaging (more like "I call some
scripts and hope Cyril got them right") but I have the feeling, that for
conffiles it is correct not to provide an entry in md5sums. At least if
I check with

debsums -e liberty-eiffel-core-libs

I get
/etc/xdg/liberty-eiffel/              OK
and after I modified it I get
/etc/xdg/liberty-eiffel/              FAILED

so In my eyes this is fine. What do you think?

What is more cirtical, is that the doc-packages seem empty, but I'll fix
