No. (I am just discussing that some admins don't know what was installed,
such as fontconfig, and it would be nice to have an email about any
important details, like Debian does.)

But I agree that needs to be improved too. Yes, all the extra instructions
must be added to the MESSAGE (aka +DISPLAY).
