Looks good and thanks very much for working on it, but one suggestion and one question. Suggestion Copy the existing function debconf_select() to old_debconf_select() and add the following near the top of the new debconf_select for backwards compatibility and transition: if ! db_metaget $template choices-c; then old_debconf_select $@ # may need quoting return $? fi On Sunday 30 March 2008, Jérémy Bobbio wrote: > * The deprecated ability to set default values through localised > strings have also been removed. Question What exactly is the new preseeding? Has that been tested? What would  need to be changed to after this patch is applied? Note that even though it _says_ using localized values is deprecated, that is still what we have been using and advertising for most questions where it's relevant. From what I remember when I looked into this myself, I think Choices-C now contains technical codes instead of English strings. If I'm correct these codes are not really human readable and are sensitive to change (e.g. because they contain sorting codes), and thus not suitable for preseeding. Cheers, FJP
