I have seen a few questions during installation of packages, thought how
bad the grammar was, and forgotten to file bug reports. Must go back and
fix that.

So my complaints list about debconf questions is:
1. Bad grammar or spelling (in the English templates);
2. Questions/notes that assume too much background knowledge; and
3. Questions/notes which are just too trivial to waste time with.

I suppose #3 is the most subjective. Can anyone add to this list?
