Re: Bug#734093: debian-installer: install plymouth by default

reassign 734093 tasksel
retitle 734093 Please include plymouth in task-desktop

(proposal to install plymouth, that "provides an attractive boot
animation in place of the text messages that normally get shown. Text
messages are instead redirected to a logfile for viewing after
boot. "...by default, with desktop environments, when installing Debian)

Quoting Holger Levsen (holger@layer-acht.org):

OK, then. Reassigning to tasksel (as we should have done for quite a
while, indeed....

Apart from that, I have no strong advice about this. A nice and
"appealing" (one taste may vary) boot screen for desktop computers can
be seen as "something to have" by some people but others may hate that.

I think that, at least, if plymouth is included in task-desktop, we
should be certain that a Debian theme is cooked for it in a consistent
manner with Debian themes for desktop environments.

.../... extending this to debian-desktop mailing list, then.

Also, it would be interesting to be sure that plymouth doesn't
interfere with accessibility of the system.
