I can try modifying the Alternate encryption case, if someone can remind
me of the URL to the right guide to do that, when the time comes.  The
hard part is not the HTML but dealing with bazaar and then following the
right procedure for a pull.  Would that be for 15.04 or for 15.10?


For 16.04, it would be best if the installers handled encryption
properly so that workarounds like dropping to the shell are not needed
for full disk encryption.

Encrypted home is probably important if there are multiple users or one
user with multiple roles on the machine.  For the full hard disk
encryption I see a main use-case as being work laptops that travel and
thus at risk of being lost or stolen.
