  1. Bug#501573: tasksel - Please remove hotkey-setup from the laptop task

    Package: tasksel
    Version: 2.75

    Please consider removing hotkey-setup from the laptop task. It's a fairly
    simplistic implementation, in some cases based only on the manufacturer
    of the system. AFAICT the definitions are now in most/all cases also
    covered by HAL in a more fine-grained manner [1].

    Recent updates to hotkey-setup all seem to have been to fix breakages it
    caused. I don't see any changes to support new models.

    IMO the generic cross-distro solution is much to be preferred over
    something Debian-specific here. It seems to me that hotkey-setup was very
    much needed for previous releases, but that general Linux desktop support
    has overtaken it.

    Cheers,
    FJP
