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

It is probably best to include plymouth in tasksel, but still the installer would have to recognize, if plymouth is installed, and then add 'splash' to the kernel command line.

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.

Therefore I think plymouth should only be recommended by task-desktop.

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.

Currently this would be the joy theme [1].

I think plymouth would have to be maintained in unstable, not just in
experimental, before tasksel should touch it.

Daniel, can you upload the experimental version to unstable, or are there problems with this version?

Best regards,
