Why is sudo not installed by default in Debian? was closed as a duplicate. I believe this to be incorrect in that this question deals with a more subtle problem than the question it is marked a duplicate of. I am unable to find a button to vote to reopen. the reason that the other questions does not answer this one is that it assumes that lists are used to configure the preselected packages, which is true for all but a hand-full of cases, the most noticeable being sudo, which has behavior which is influenced by non package configuration options.

  • The OP, @Braiam voted to close it himself, actually he prompted the closing of it so can we get his opinion on it? – slm Dec 24 '13 at 22:54
  • He asked for references, I'm digging up source code, unfortunately my main test machine is at the lab, so it is taking me a couple minutes longer than I like. – hildred Dec 24 '13 at 23:02
  • I pinged him in the comment above. – slm Dec 24 '13 at 23:07
