Solid patch! Foswiki forked from Twiki a while back. We already have an appliance for Twiki but I believe Foswiki has a future as well so it would be great to support it. I especially like that you've added foswiki's Debian repository to the APT sources rather than downloading the deb and installing it manually. This way updating is much easier. I have only a few relatively minor remarks:

  • If you're installing postfix, it's best to also install webmin-postfix for easier management.
  • foswiki is a Perl app so you probably don't need the PHP dependencies that usually come with LAMP (e.g., libapache2-mod-php5, php5-common, webmin-phpini, etc.)

Changes applied

I tested the patch. Working !

Excellent. I ran a diff between the two versions and confirmed that the only change was to remove the unnecessary dependencies and add webmin-postfix.
