I think this was the easiest path to let us add toggling with several frontends (graphical & text, basically), see this commit in cdebconf: | commit 78de074872978c7b4df136edd9bc274899b65bea | Author: Regis Boudin <firstname.lastname@example.org> | Date: Wed Aug 21 20:00:39 2013 +0200 | | asking the show password question in newt https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/d-i/cdebconf.git/commit/?id=78de074872978c7b4df136edd9bc274899b65bea This might be tweakable to be shown once per screen globally as you suggested, but a little work would seem needed… Adding the author to the loop for now, even if I suppose the right thing to do is to reassign to src:cdebconf.
