Feature #14568: Additional Software Packages
Additional software: fix installation of packages requiring manual confirmation
Currently this feature fails to install packages that require manual confirmation. For example sun-java6-jdk. Setting debconf priority to critical should help.
If I'm not mistaken, this is not formally part of SponsorW_2017. I propose we move it our of that view for now, but keep that in mind for #14592: I doubt many users will install such packages so perhaps we will prefer to focus on polishing & bugfixing that has a greater impact, even though the impact of this bug is pretty bad when it happens.
What do you think?
Now, how complicated would it be to detect such packages as part of SponsorW_2017 and display a message saying "Sorry, Additional Software doesn't work with this package because it requires manual confirmation.". So we're not silently failing.
Probably harder than fixing the problem (which should be easy in itself, so if we have extra time, I'd actually love if we could fix it :)
Deliverable for changed from SponsorW_2017 to Tails_3.7
I'm keeping this ticket in the view for now, but not as a deliverable for Sponsor_W.
Setting "Deliverable for" to a Tails version is new and has no well-defined semantics, so I wonder: did you mean to set "Target version: Tails_3.7" instead?
