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
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?
