OK, curious. It definitely shouldn't, perhaps there's an issue in the
apache templates that makes it happen. I'll have a look when I get the

Ideally I'd probably like this to be a series of debconf questions, or
at least pop a default file in there. It something that I do need to
work on.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this.

Sure, it's appreciated :) there's a lot of fine-tuning that I hope to do
to this, it's just a matter of finding time. Feel free to file bugs for
any of these things that you think warrant it, it makes it less likely
that I'll forget about them.

For reference, the way we run it here on our hosted system is that we
have another package that supplies default SQL for new instances and
another SQL file for the demo instance, and it also provides cron jobs
for backups, and a standard configuration. This isn't really necessary
for smaller instances, and we mostly do it because it lets us have our
configuration in one version-controlled, packaged place.
