Dear Christian,

in #592550, I and others are proposing to add a functionality
to network-console, and the proposed patch would introduce the
following templates:

diff -pruN 1.29/debian/network-console.templates 1.29ubuntu1/debian/network-console.templates
--- 1.29/debian/network-console.templates	2011-06-19 02:40:08.000000000 +0000
+++ 1.29ubuntu1/debian/network-console.templates	2011-10-18 17:23:42.000000000 +0000
@@ -75,3 +75,19 @@ _Description: Start SSH
  Please check this carefully against the fingerprint reported by
  your SSH client.
+Template: network-console/authorized_keys_url
+Type: string
+Description: for internal use; can be preseeded
+ What URL contains a list of authorized SSH public keys?
+ .

+ authorized_keys file.
+Template: network-console/authorized_keys_fetch_failure

+Description: Could not fetch OpenSSH authorized keys

How are considered the templates that are purposed for preseeding ?  Do you
think that, from an i18n point of view, it would still be possible to get that
patch in D-I for Wheezy ?  To be fair, this function is not essential; but it
is neat, as it allows to log in D-I with the same procedure as on some
high-profile machine images (like http://alestic.com/).

Reading the explanation about sublevels that you posted in 2007 (
http://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2007/12/msg00480.html ), it looks like the
propose patch is actually missing an indication of sublevel.  Would sublevel 5
be relevant ?  I would like to update the patch and propose a NMU (depending on
your answer about string freeze).

Have a nice day,
