    14 Replace "fubar" with the name of the package you are interested in. This just checks to see if the package is ''available'' within the debian system.  If it is, then it's almost always the case that you should ask to have it installed system-wide on your server by [/newticket opening a ticket].  Remember to explain in your ticket ''why'' you want the software installed.

    1616If there's some reason why a particular package shouldn't be installed on a particular server, that discussion can take place in the ticket.  And remember that the more packages we have installed on a shared server, the more maintenance (and therefore administrative time and attention) that server needs.  So don't be surprised if there's a general resistance to installing new packages.  That resistance helps keep our shared infrastructure stable.
