Package: login.app
Version: 1.2.1-17
Severity: normal

login.app asks configuration questions interactively on the terminal. This
assumes interactive installation of the package, which is not always the case
(especially when the package is included in a Custom Debian Distribution).

Also, such assumption is now deprecated as of version 3.6.1 of Debian Policy,
chapter 3.10.1:

	Package maintainer scripts may prompt the user if necessary.
	Prompting should be done by communicating through a program, such as
	`debconf', which conforms to the Debian Configuration management
	specification, version 2 or higher.  Prompting the user by other
	means, such as by hand[1], is now deprecated.

The solution is to either use debconf or somehow avoid such questions.
