Yes, but what about the /usr/share/tasksel/debian-tasks.desc file?
(And I still want to know what's proper for that file and what isn't)

D'oh!  I need to learn to read.  Sorry. :-)

I guess this is what Junichi meant the other day by:

I think that it has been decided it won't make woody if we did it this way,
and we ask the ftpmaster for an override.

So, I guess this means I shouldn't put "Task: parallel-computing-dev" in petsc-dev's description?
