Re: [RFR] templates://syscp/{templates}

Hi Christian and the famous d-l10n-en team,

I feel like a newbie with all these corrections, and even more I seem to
need english lessons... :(

Okay, the pronouns... didn't know better. Ack from me, fwiw.

If you guys all consider this debconf abuse I'll trust your word. SysCP
is pretty useless unless cron jobs and daemon configs are adjusted.
Since a package is meant to work after installation I thought it might
be worth a note during installation. But OTOH you're right; it
interrupts the installation process and thus can be considered abuse.

Please, if you think I should leave that note out, tell me (e.g. in the
bug report you're going to file) and I kick it out before translators
get to see the template.

Thanks for reviewing!
