[Jonas Smedegaard]I believe debian-installer now supports *not* setting a root password, to support sudo style root access: noone is allowed to login as root directly, only indirectly as a user in the sudoers (or whatever) group.If I am not mistaken, it do not provide the setup we need. It allow one to create a local user and not set the root password _or_ no local user and require to set the root password.We do not want the initial local user, and some times might not want the root password, a combination that is not handled by d-i at the moment.
If you wonder how Debian Edu work, I recommend to test the install CDs or DVDs in a virtual machine. Your comments made me believe you have not tested Debian Edu for a while now. :)
I fail to see how testing the install routines would help understand the parts deliberately silenced from the user experience.
