This is a long-standing usability issue (#678539/#731694) in MoinMoin.
I've now fixed it in the theme we use and sent upstream a patch for
Yes, I suppose the problem is making a proper upstream program before
packaging it with all the configure, make, and so on tools but it's on
my TODO list.
The first problem is that I should convert it into a package
There is lots of documentation about packaging, this is the official one:
What I wanted to remark that when you start from scratch Debian guides
on how to package software imply that you have an upstream tar.gz so you
are a bit lost.
But, well, this was five or seven years ago when I last checked these
documents so maybe nowadays there has been improvement.
The second problem is that it has some many dependencies
Each of those would need to be packaged separately.
Yeah, actually most of these dependencies are normal Debian packages.
Well, yes, I meant the other way round. A normal user in his Debian
installation trying to install Rescapp, downloading all these
dependencies packages and then nothing working as expected because not
being in a live system.
The third problem is that is a tool ... from a live cd
Live images are just normal installations that live on media that are
read-only and possibly removable. I expect there will be zero issues
or if there are some, they will be easy to fix.
Welcome to the Debian derivatives census!
I already submitted a draft about what was going there
so I suppose that most everything will be correct.
There were a few issues, I've fixed them.
1) I've seen that most of my problems is about example not being
replaced by my distribution codename. I was wondering if it would be
easy (or convenient) to make a find/replace on template when you create
a new census page so that Example is turned into Derivativename.
2) Why did you uncomment the boot-repair repository? Template says that
you should present external repository as commented out. Or am I
3) The apt repositories line is confusing because you are removing text
inside brackets before the colon. The same happens with Docs about
Example for Debian developers.
You know machines find and replace every string on all the text but
humans are not like that. We expect not having to change anything in the
text before the colon.
So maybe if the find/replace on template stated in 1) above is not going
to be implemented in the short them you could add a notice about the
* Having to replace Example with their Derivativename
* Not only after colon symbol but before it.
at the initial comments at CensusTemplate.
4) You seemed to forget the TIME thing at the bottom ;).
5) From the initial comment lines you only removed the first one.
If it was the right thing to do (not a mistake) why don't you edit
CensusTemplate and say after it "and remove this line itself at your
final DerivateCensus page".

subscribed to the page, which would enable you to be notified when

Yeah, I forgot to do so. I'm now subscribed.
