I guess the reason for those blends missing at www.debian.org page is 
related to disputes on a) whether only metapackages can be blends, and 
b) if blends not yet in stable should be listed.  It seems to me that at 
least the latter of those disputes is orthogonal to the work of listing 
blends as options in debian-installer.

NB! I do not mean to rehash those disputes here, nor complain about the 
omission of blends in your recent work.

Where is that debian-blends-task.desc file that you ask me to update?  
If it is part of the blends-dev source package, then could we please 
move that file to somewhere independent of our different build tools?
