This is right. We could easily implement a public comment - but up to now there
was just no request for this. Strictly speaking anything that is no known
field name that is interpreted could serve as a comment in the tasks file. If
we settle down on a certain field name as publich comment this would not really
hard to implement.
Depends/Recommends/Suggests are packages already in debian.
are software NOT in debian and proposed to package. That's the difference.
No, there is no such field name "Package". The algorithm is explained in
Yu declare every package name as "Depends/Recommends/Suggests". In case
such a package shows up on the mirror automatically the package description
will be displayed. If there is no such package name found the tasks file
could provide the infromation which is needed.
