[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: live-build
Version: 3.0.1-1

live-builds chroot_{upstart,dpkg} use a move/replace method to disable
initctl and start-stop-daemon. If, during the run of live-build an
update to the parent package happens, the remove stage of
chroot_{upstart,dpkg} replaces the original file instead of the updated
file. Switching to using "dpkg-divert" fixes this problem.
