central configuration program for packages using debconf
configure-debian is a program which presents a list of packages which use Debconf, Debian's configuration management system.
Debconf provides first-time installation wizards that run when a package is installed. You may reconfigure these packages at a later time, if you wish, and configure-debian makes that very easy.
configure-debian splits the package lists into the subsections which make up the Debian archive, such as x11, base, gnome, or kde.
