Re: Bug#758116: Allow to select Blends selection during installation - just "DE", "Web server", "Mail server" is NOT enough

Thanks for confirming that your “Being able to add extra tasks using
udebs is a feature, not a bug.” wasn't really on topic then.

Having this kind of move forced on us doesn't seem reasonable to me,
which has been exactly my point over the past few mails.

Let me reiterate: I don't want this to happen ever again.

Please explain how you came to that conclusion.

What? I'm talking about a future evolution. I can't see why something
using a pre-pkgsel.d hook to prepare things for d-i couldn't be
updated to create e.g. an extra file to get pkgsel to behave as
intended. I don't see why such implementation details would be
important in this discussion, and that's why I mentioned “debian-edu
udebs can certainly interact with it so that it behaves as desired”.

Pretty sure I'm not the one “misunderstanding” anything here.
