Enhancement #648

Updated by Marc Dequènes 2 months ago

Please update the TODOs below and add a note to comment on the progress.

Identified oneshot changes:
* Migrating from legacy network interface names: see https://www.debian.org/releases/buster/amd64/release-notes/ch-information.en.html#migrate-interface-names
* /usr is now merged by default and most softwares expect path to be updated: there is no reason to diverge from the Debian installation and that would cause annoying config changes; installing the `usrmerge` package solves it
* SysV init related packages no longer required: apt purge initscripts sysv-rc insserv startpar
* PostgreSQL databases need to be reindexed: sudo -u postgres reindexdb --all

Identified deployment changes:
* hidepid with systemd and polkit: see https://wiki.debian.org/Hardening#Mounting_.2Fproc_with_hidepid
* install debian-security-support

Problematic softwares:
* phpmyadmin: not in Buster but still in Debian; will there be backports?
