Package: anubis
Version: 3.6.2-2.1
Severity: important

Anubis uses Debconf during the postinst which means that it should not
interact with the user other than via Debconf.  However, the script also
calls openssl to generate a certificate during installation without
supplying all the information required to generate the certificate.  As
a result openssl tries to interact with the user.

With at least the dialog front end problems actually appear as a result
of doing this - Debconf redirects the standard I/O streams so it is not
possible for the user to respond to the certificate generation prompts.
This causes the postinst to hang.

This bug could probably be worked around by using db_stop.  Another
(perhaps preferable) approach would be to have the supply values to the
openssl certificate generation.

Because this package was recently orphaned, tracking these bugs as being
NMU'd and not acknowledged by a maintainer upload is no longer
necessary, so I'm closing these bugs.
