Would you like to be able to set time and/or keyboard on install/firstboot

Some have suggested that it would be good to be able to select/set keyboard and/or time on install/firstboot. I know that the devs are trying to keep it simple but perhaps it would be a good idea to include this?

So the question is, do you want keyboard and/or time selection to be included in appliances as a default firstboot script?


Both keyboard and time - We should be able to select both timezone and default keyboard on firstboot.

No change - No I want it to be as simple as possible. Anyone who wants to set the time or a non-US keyboard can do that themselves later.

'Advanced' option for setting these and more - How about we have an 'advanced' option where these 2 (and other things?) could be preconfigured by users on firstboot (please post other suggestions).

Time config included only - Selecting time/timezone on firstboot makes sense, but having to select keyboard would just be an extra pain.

Keyboard selection only - It'd be good to be able to choose a non-US keyboard on firstboot but setting time isn't required.
