W maintainer-script-should-not-use-deprecated-chown-usage

chown user.group is called in one of the maintainer scripts. The correct syntax is chown user:group. Using "." as a separator is still supported by the GNU tools, but it will fail as soon as a system uses the "." in user or group names.

Refer to the chown(1) manual page for details.
