Ill-informed? How about poorly documented task proposals
which did not reflect reality? the changelog entry was taken straignt
out of the task porposal as presented to the policy group; and since
there has been no mention in the last few months in debian-devel, is
it surprising that I assumed that the proposers of tasksel knew what
they were talking about the proposal.
A year spent in artificial intelligence is enough to make one believe
