Hi Julien,

thank you for your comments and sorry for forgetting to run a spellchecker.  I
will make the following spelling corrections. 


About the problem of triggers being called with Depends not satisfied, can you
give more explanations or suggest some text for the warning ?  Would it be
enough to add a notice that the triggered postinst script may be called when
the package is "Unpacked", which is a state that does not require that the
packages that are depended on are configured ?

Also, if you think that triggers will give us problems for the Jessie release,
may I suggest that you give it a broad audience on debian-devel ?  As a
maintainer of a package that has triggers, I am definitely interested to learn
if there is something I should give particular attention there.

Have a nice day,
