Description

Per discussion on athena10@, we're moving away from lockers in order to get timely updates without a maintenance burden. We should therefore make most of the "batteries included" functionality that formerly lived in lockers available both in cluster machines and on other typical Athena environments.

The current version of this is the debathena-cluster-software metapackage. As is it's not suitable for e.g. dialups like Linerva, because it includes openoffice.org and thunderbird. It should become two packages:

  • debathena-extra-software-nox for lynx, drscheme, and everything else non-graphical;
  • debathena-extra-software for the graphical stuff, plus a dependency on debathena-extra-software-nox.

Possibly some other names would be better.
