Package: needrestart
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: whonix-devel at whonix.org

Dear maintainer,

we are wondering if needrestart should be installed by default in Whonix.

When needrestart is automatically run during apt-get dist-upgrade,
I am concerned, that its output by default is too technical and verbose
and will therefore add more confusion.

Therefore I am hereby kindly asking if you could add an easy mode please?

- can be enabled by dropping some file into /etc/needrestart/conf.d
- no automatic restart
- it's output would be limited to the following

> Services need to be restarted. Reboot recommended.
> For more information, see 'man needrestart'.

Or does the current configuration already allow configuring needrestart
that way?
