explore if we can use db_set to skip dbconfig questions for diaspora
Created by: Praveen Arimbrathodiyil
@balasankarc it would be nice if we can pre answer the dbconfig questions. We may be able to use db_set for those questions. I'm not sure though as dbconfig-common is used by many packages.

Install it and see. dbcinfig will ask its own questions in addition to this, we already know the answers to those.

@pravi: These are the questions we are asking. I didn't understand what 'default' values you are referring to
- Host name for this instance of Diaspora
- PostgreSQL application password
- Enable https?
- Backup your database
- Third party services to be enabled:
- Facebook App ID:
- Facebook Secret:
- Twitter Key:
- Twitter Secret:
- Tumblr Key:
- Tumblr Secret:
- Wordpress Client ID:
- Wordpress Secret:

We can avoid asking questions that we already know answers for. For example, gitlab don't have these questions and we still have a fully configured service at the end.

I still don't understand the advantage it provides.

It will ask, do you want to use dbconfig-common? Then whether new host or localhost and password. We know answers to all those questions.
