[Bug 423678] Re: [FFe] fortunes-ubuntu-server


Closing this FFe as we need:
 - a proper url shortener to be in place
 - to have a proper discussion about this at UDS
and we currently lack a proper specification.

Status in Ubuntu Server Tips: Invalid

Bug description:
Prior to 9.10 Motd displays 7 lines of legal warning that takes up usefull space. In 9.10 this legal text is only diplayed the first time each user logs in. Kirkland has already implemented and commited it, legal has approved the change. Given the reclaimed extra space, and in order to provide visibility to new or important features in Ubuntu Server Edition, we want to add the fortunes-ubuntu-server package, and install by default on server installs, that will randomly display 2 lines of text at the in the motd.

Possible regressions: very limited.  fortunes-mod has been in main for ages, this package only contains data for it and a on line script that is placed in /etc/update-motd.d/
