As explained earlier, I did this to bring the package in line with the
behaviour of the package in unstable. I also believe it is a good thing
to do, but it isn't important to me nor important for the stability of
the Debian Edu server setup. Should the change in stable be limited to
only modifying the success output?
I'm happy to provide an updated package with changes the way you want
it, and is very eager to get an updated package in place for the next
release of Debian Edu based on Squeeze. :)
