The description has little to do with:
1. your not checking for appropriate (in this case: backend)
components before running installation/configuration steps.
2. your considering redmine's postinst configuration as successful
while it is not. As a consequence, redmine is considered being
installed properly, while it is not.
> You selected a pgsql backend. It fails. Install redmine-pgsql.
It's your job to (1) catch this kind of failure, possibly hitting
users with a cluebat, pointing to the documentation and appropriate
instructions if you feel like it, and to (2) leave your package in an
appropriate state WRT the package manager.
