+Installing the GNU Taler binary packages on Debian

+To install the Taler auditor, you can now simply run:
+.. code-block:: console
+ # apt install taler-exchange
+Note that Taler auditor is part of the ``taler-exchange`` package.
+The package sets up the various users and the systemd service scripts
+for an exchange, which will not be needed for an auditor. Simply do not
+enable the taler-exchange-httpd service and this should be harmless.
+.. note::
+ In the future, we plan to split the package and have a separate
+ ``taler-auditor`` package.
+For the auditor, you must manually configure access to the exchange database,
+the HTTP reverse proxy (typically with TLS certificates) and offline signing.
+.. note::
+ The current package does not setup a user for the ``taler-auditor-httpd``
+ and includes no provisions for the reverse proxy configuration.
+ This should change in a future release.
