Bug#758762: Please drop acpi-support from task-laptop

Package: tasksel-data
Version: 3.20
Severity: normal


looking at [1] I'm really concerned that we still install acpi-support
by default via task-laptop. acpi-support does a lot of scary stuff and
pulls in deprecated components like consolekit on everyones laptop.

With the switch to systemd, there is no longer a compelling reason to
install acpi-support (and acpid) by default, as logind already does the
key event handling (suspend/hibernate/lid-switch) in a match saner way.

Please consider dropping acpi-support (and eventually acpid) from
