I support displaying the contents of files in /etc/motd.d/*, but:
- Why only for ssh logins? What about console logins? What about graphical desktop logins?
Why should that users not see this messages?
- Why should a normal user see a message like
"Activate the web console with: systemctl enable --now cockpit.socket" ?
A normal user cannot do that!
But an administrator doesn't need this message - he / she knows systemctl command and
/ or can read the documentation!
There should be at least a configuration option if cockpit-ws generates this message!
The default should be off - because administrators should be able to install the same list
of packages on many different hosts (workstations, servers, notebooks, virtual machines,
etc.) but run different services and use cases on them.
Now I need to uninstall cockpit-ws to get rid of this cockpit messages!
I cannot even disable cockpit-motd.service because it is static! Thats very bad!
