Package: devuan-baseconf

I'm finding /data/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/05disable-suggests in various
installs going back as far as Oct. 14, 2015. It's in Refracta isos, Devuan
isos made with live-sdk recently, and in installs made from various
versions of Devuan installer isos.

dpkg -L and dpkg -S show that the file is from devuan-baseconf.

Here's the offending line in the source:

data/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/05disable-suggests data/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/

should be:
data/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/05disable-suggests /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/

Bug is also present in ceres (0.6.4+devuan3)

I think this is fixed, and, as we have discussed, devuan-baseconf is obsolete.
