Bug#586243: education-desktop-sugar: please remove this package, it's outdated and confuses users
In Lenny I could have multiple sessions of Sugar with rdesktop but had to
install all Sugar packages and the presentation of Lenny changed to Debian
Edu. In Squeeze it changed too but I never could share Sugar with rdesktop.
Accessing Sugar from desktop terminals or thinstations is important, please
don`t forget it while removing packages.

Please remove education-desktop-sugar from sid/squeeze. It depends on
obsolete package names and confuses users.
The description suggests this is what to install to get a complete Sugar
installation on a desktop, whereas it will actually install the Debian
Edu suite (+ Sugar). One user even reported it "will hose your boot" (the
system hung part-way through the boot process - unfortunately no more
details are available as he was in a hurry and overwrote the installation
with Fedora afterwards in order to get a working Sugar installation).
