Well, there are other issues that would need to be done about the
debconf script, namely:
- think about using default values (several bugs, 2 of them inportant)
- find the root cause of #55276
I you feel like tracking them, please feel free to do so.
Nevertheless, according to the release plan at
http://www.debian.org/News/weekly/1999/48/mail#3 we should be inside
of the 1st test cycle (unless it was shifted, but I have no info on
this), so IMHO the safe plan for this would be to postpone debconf
support in console-* for woody. Since debconf support is not yet
completely generalized, I think we can afford this, although I'd have
prefered a robust debconf support in these packages :}
Best regards, and thanks for your help,
