install dummy-dependency by default

Reason why it is not installed by default? Couldn’t it solve a lot of issues?
How-to: Use Electrum Bitcoin Wallet in Whonix ™

On the Uninstallation section,
It is saying to install dummy-dependency, but the correct package name is dummy-dependency-electrum.
Also, there is the other package dummy-dependency-hardened-electrum, can’t it be also installed by default? Because depending on the system the user may have troubles.

Nevermind, I believe it can’t be installed by default because then electrum wouldn’t be reinstalled, as it was fullfilled by the dummy.

Anyway, need to correct the electrum dummy package name.

Fixed in wiki just now.

In kicksecure-meta-packages debian/control already fixed a while ago. Relevant lines:

Package: dummy-dependency-electrum
Provides: electrum, dummy-dependency-hardened-electrum
Replaces: dummy-dependency-hardened-electrum

Indeed. It wouldn’t be installed by default at all.
I’d love to have a better solution but I doubt it exists. → Technical Information
