Bug#766388: RFP: gnome-initial-setup -- bootstrapping after installation

Changwoo Ryu
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : gnome-initial-setup
  Version         : 3.14.1
  Upstream Author :
* URL             : https://wiki.gnome.org/Design/OS/InitialSetup
* License         : GPL-2+
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : bootstrapping after installation


This is part of GNOME release since 3.10. I think this can be nice
addition to the empty GNOME screen after the installation. gdm should
launch this application in the first boot situation.

This wouldn't be very useful since all/most of the setup is done by d-i. Some
integration would be needed, so that the installer defers the setup so that
gnome-initial-setup can do it. I believe Laurent has investigated this.

Indeed, I think this specifically kicks in if no user has been created,
which is not the common case in Debian as d-i does create a user by
default.

Also please not g-i-s is already packaged (not uploaded) in pkg-gnome.
We've discussed a few times that it might be ok to upload it to Debian
as it might be useful for downstreams or special installers of Debian,
even if it's not part of the GNOME metapackage install.

There are some cases where it might be useful: Live images,
preinstalled systems and OEM images. These are all systems prepared by
someone other than the person using the system, so they might want to
reconfigure some aspects of the install.
