Bug Description

when upgrading openssh-server today from 1:6.5p1-6 -> 1:6.6p1-1 today in trusty I was presented with a debconf question warning me that password authentication for root will by default be disabled from now on and if I was OK with that. This makes sense for Debian bt not for Ubuntu since Ubuntu uses sudo and by default does not have a password set for the root account. I suggest to disable this question for Ubuntu.

  * If no root password is set, then switch to "PermitRootLogin
    without-password" without asking (LP: #1300127).
