One question is whether it is flagged as a configuration file and will
thus ask for intervention by whomever is upgrading the packages. I
tried to ask

  swada:~# dpkg -D220 -L moin | grep moin_config.py
  /usr/share/moin/cgi-bin/moin_config.py
  /usr/share/doc/moin/examples/moin_config.py

but apparently -D doesn't behave like I expect it to.

swada is a sarge (testing) box so you can expect updates to moin
fairly frequently (guessing' order of a week). I have no idea what
inspires it to upgrade. If you don't mind, you could check every once
in a while* (tm) until the version changes.

  swada:~# dpkg -l moin
  ||/ Name           Version        Description
  ii  moin           1.2.3-1        MoinMoin - a Python clone of WikiWiki

Yes, that could be another way things could just work out.
