Who decide corresponding answer on this structure?
Many maintainers have already choiced debconf, maybe they have not time
adding new informations.

If you decide how to set it, you must have a good communication with
all maintainer of package which need interactive question. It will
need quick response, quick change, quick upload to do so.

You, Kamoshida, you have a RC bug(#43201) (and two normal bugs),
must fix them quickly, don't you? It leaves alone for 134 days.
