Hi Lars,

1. I hope we can agree very soon about the alternate encryption
test-cases, and do it for 15.04, but I can fully understand, that Walter
or some other important persons may want to wait and think twice before
changing these test-cases.

2. What I suggested today does not imply any dropping to a shell.
Without encrypted home the alternate test-cases will be smooth. But I'm
waiting for someone (you, Lars?) to verify my test results.

3. I agree that 'Encrypted home' is important if there are multiple
users or one user with multiple roles on the machine. But must it be
combined with encrypted disk and LVM?

4. I think creating the corresponding test-cases for the desktop
installer needs more time, but modifying the alternate test-cases need
not wait for the desktop ones to be ready for publishing.

Best regards
