debconf prompt poorly worded for a checkbox

Bug #337890 reported by Brian Murray on 2009-03-04
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ufw (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ufw

The following prompt doesn't make much sense in a GUI with a checkbox:

Template: ufw/enable
Type: boolean
Default: false
Description: Should ufw be enabled?

I would have expected there to Yes / No buttons in a GUI with a question phrased like this.

ProblemType: Bug

DistroRelease: Ubuntu 9.04
NonfreeKernelModules: fglrx
Package: ufw 0.27~r416-0ubuntu1
PackageArchitecture: all
 PATH=(custom, user)
SourcePackage: ufw
Uname: Linux 2.6.28-8-generic x86_64

This bug was fixed in the package ufw - 0.27~r416-0ubuntu4

ufw (0.27~r416-0ubuntu4) jaunty; urgency=low

  * debian/templates: rephrase boolean description so it works with both cli
    yes/no question and gui checkbox (LP: #337890)
