Re: Debian packages and Bruce Hohl Install

Hi John and others;

Two comments relating to how things might get more interesting if
included in the initial OS install:

in the RPM's the fear is that if these are ever included in a
repository that might be used during installation, we can;t guarantee
that PostgreSQL is running at the time of installation.  I suppose
that we could try to start PostgreSQL if it is not already started,
but then we get identd issues with most packages, and of course we
would want to discuss the relevant security issues here first.

Secondly, since we can't guarantee that an appropriate MTA is running
at the time of installation, it would be better to create a file in
the /root/ directory that would have that information if we find that
we should go this route.

Best Wishes,
Chris Travers
