See my first post in this series for an explanation. In short, I’m tossing out some of my personal remaining gripes and hoping someone finds them worthy of their time to address in the next six months.

Affects: Ubuntu alternate installer (debian-installer), and encryption options (partman-crypto, dm-crypt, LUKS)

I was pretty excited when I found out that install-time encrypted partitions would be possible in Gutsy. Unfortunately, after going through the installation process a few times and trying to use the system afterwards, I don’t think it’s really ready. I’ve identified three issues I would like to have addressed, one each of high, medium, and low severity to me. The bug reports are the best descriptions this time I think. Essentially for this one, take what has been implemented and make it production-ready, as an LTS release deserves.
