1. Why ask "yes or no" *before* checking for root (which is needed)?

I would check for root first, and *then* ask "do you want to proceed?",
otherwise you're asking "do you want to do this?" and then saying "you can't"
if they aren't root - frustrating.

2. I question the wording of "Do you want contrib repos to be added to your
apt sources?" because if I saw this, and I knew I already *had* contrib repos,
I would think "no, I don't them to be added; they're already there".

So, maybe "Do you want contrib repos to be included in your apt sources?"
would be a better way to ensure that if the user wants them, they'll get them.


APL [is a language], in which you can write a program to simulate shuffling a
deck of cards and then dealing them out to several players, in four
characters, none of which appear on a standard keyboard.
