I see hobbit 4.2.0 in ubuntu repo and it is keeping some of the cfg
files in /var/run/hobbit dir. The problem with that is when the ubuntu
server reboots it clears the contents of /var/run and then hobbit
complains and fails to restart.

I suggest all the cfg files get put in /etc/hobbit or some other
places as part of pkg installation.

I am also ccing the maintainer list

These are the files where the changes need to be made

root at improvise:~# dpkg -L hobbit | grep -v \.gz | xargs grep
'/var/run/hobbit' | awk -F: '{print $1}' | sort -u
