[RFR2] templates://console-common/{templates.in}

Slainte, Justin....

I grabbed all suggestions and here are the new files.

I also entirely revamped the first template as an attempt to make it
fit in a single screen (this is probably not still enough: shortening
it by at least 2 lines would be good).

Template: console-data/keymap/policy
Type: select
__Choices: Select keymap from arch list, Don't touch keymap, Keep kernel keymap, Select keymap from full list
Default: Don't touch keymap
_Description: Policy for handling keymaps:
 The keymap describes how keys are laid out on the keyboard, and what
 symbols (letters, digits, etc.) are drawn on them.
  - 'Select keymap from arch list': select one of the predefined keymaps
    specific for your architecture (recommended for all non-USB keyboards);
  - 'Don't touch keymap': will prevent the configuration system from
     overwriting the manually installed keymap defined in /etc/console.
     Such keymap must have been installed with install-keymap(8);
  _ 'Keep kernel keymap': prevent any keymap from being loaded next time
     the system boots. 
  - 'Select keymap from full list': shows a full listing of all predefined
    keymaps. Recommended when using (often USB) keyboards from a different
    computer architecture.

Template: console-data/keymap/ignored
Type: note
_Description: Ignored boot-time keymap in an old location
 The keymap configuration tool has been set up not to touch an existing
 However, there are some 'default.kmap(.gz)' file(s) either in
 /etc/kbd/ or in /etc/console-tools/. These were recognized as
 boot-time keymaps by older versions of the console utilities, but are
 now ignored.
 If you wish one of these to take effect on next reboot, you will have
 to move it to /etc/console/boottime.kmap.gz manually.

Template: console-data/keymap/family
Type: select
Choices: ${choices}
Default: qwerty
_Description: Keyboard layout family:
 Please specify the generic family name for the keyboard
 layout. Usually, the layout family name is taken from the first keys on the
 left of the top letters row of the keymap.

Template: console-data/keymap/template/layout
Type: select
Choices: ${choices}
_Description: Keyboard layout:
 In order to refine the keymap choice, please select the
 physical layout of the keyboard.

Template: console-data/keymap/template/variant
Type: select
Choices: ${choices}
_Description: Keyboard variant:
 The selected keyboard layout has several variants. Please select the
 one matching the keyboard.

Template: console-data/keymap/template/keymap
Type: select
Choices: ${choices}
_Description: Keymap:
 The selected keyboard allows a choice from a range of keymaps.
 Usually these were designed either for specific tastes (for instance
 with dead keys) or for specific needs (such as programming).

Template: console-data/keymap/full
Type: select
Choices: ${choices}
_Description: Keymap:
 If the keyboard is designed for a different computer architecture, you should
 choose a specific keymap in the full map.

Template: console-data/keymap/powerpcadb
Type: boolean
_Description: Are you ready for the ADB keycodes transition?
 The kernel is configured to have the keyboard send ADB keycodes. This
 behaviour is now deprecated and no longer supported.
 For best results, you should reconfigure the kernel with
 CONFIG_MAC_ADBKEYCODES=n. Alternatively, you can pass
 'keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes=1' as an argument to the kernel.
 Please be aware that the transition will most probably break the X
 configuration, so it is strongly recommended to close all X sessions
 now and adapt the configuration afterwards by running
 'dpkg-reconfigure console-data'.
