This seems to be a very taiwanese centric package to increase experience
a.) chinese speaking users who need some special settings before
Debian is really usable (yes, our installer sucks here)
b.) install a whole number of third party packages/software
For the first point you really want to change the name, lazyscripts is
sure not going to win anything. And even more you want to adjust the
description to actually state what its doing and what it is for.
The second means it has to end up in contrib.
Also reading the news page, im not sure if i would want the script on my
system, i think it should be hilighted that the first step this
scriptset i doing is to download a whole bunch of scripts from the net
to execute them. Unless you disable that by default, shipping them all,
and make it an option.
(Looking through the scripts is also pretty scary, with all the apt-get
-y --force-yes, su/sudo to modify the system in sometimes pretty scary
ways and all without any error handling. Have a single command go wrong
- it doesnt care, it goes on, potentially killing the system.
Also, many echo statements that output chinese only text, you might want
to provide some english texts too or expect a good set of confused error
reports :) At least if you intend to have that in Debian and as such for
all of our users.
