Ubuntu has a patch adding a "pkgsel/update-policy" debconf question which
is used to control the installation of unattended-upgrades. I want to
merge this into Debian.
The biggest question in this work is the default value and priority of
Ubuntu defaults to "none" (no automatic installation) but asks the
question at high priority on netboot (non-cdrom) images or on their
For Debian, I don't think that making such a difference makes sense.
- either always show the question with its default value of "none"
(thus making sure that they have a chance to opt-in to this feature)
- or not show the question (priority "medium") but make it default
to install unattended-upgrades so that they get updates by default but
have a chance to disable that with preseeding
Given the last discussion on -devel
(https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2016/11/threads.html#00117) I think
we should make a bold choice and do the latter.
I'm going to submit a tested patch later on.

pkgsel - Select and install packages (udeb)
pkgsel (0.46) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Merge pkgsel/update-policy preseed from Ubuntu to offer to install
* No longer divert scrollkeeper, the rarian-compat implementation is fast
* Ensure a file is not already diverted before diverting it.
* Run updatedb by default when a locate implementation has been installed.
This can be disabled with the pkgsel/updatedb preseed.
* Despite the use of triggers, we often have multiple update-initramfs calls
in a single installation run. Thus divert the command during installation
and do a single run at the end.
* Add a final "apt-get clean" call at the end to ensure that we don't have
any .deb file remaining in APT's cache.
* Install/enable unattended-upgrades by default. Closes: #875858
