Re: Review request for twiki-ldapcontrib's debconf templates

Is this saying "twiki-ldapcontrib has been installed (in the dpkg
sense) but the LdapContrib topic data has not been imported"?

Is "attachments" the standard term here?

"Twiki's defaults path" is wrong, but avoid the issue:

   not in the standard location under /var/lib/twiki/data/TWiki/.

Instead of being tentative, be polite:

   Please follow the instructions in /usr/share/doc/twiki/README.Debian.gz
   to install TWiki's "default Topic Set", and then run
   "dpkg-reconfigure twiki-ldapcontrib". 

(I'm assuming "Topic Set" with its odd capitalisation is standard).
Note the -.gz; and in fact it might be simpler to point directly at
the TWikiInstallationGuide.

If it means installation in the install-from-tarballs sense this
time, it might be clearer as something like:

   Alternatively, LdapContrib's twiki-data and twiki-pub files
   can be manually installed from the tarballs in

JBR	with qualifications in linguistics, experience as a Debian
