Bug#883297: "Packages: list" field removed from tasksel control file

Hi Andreas,

I intend to create a new set of metapackages for Debian Med.  After the
generation using blends-dev 0.6.100 I realised the following diff:

diff --git a/debian-med-tasks.desc b/debian-med-tasks.desc

In other words:  The field

   Packages: list

is missing (for all tasks).  I suspect this might be connected to the
s/Depends/Recommends change in blends-dev 0.6.99.  Please correct me
if I'm wrong (since I'm not a tasksel expert) but this is an unwanted
side effect, right?

Mike, could you have a look?

Thanks a lot


I have looked at the blend-gen-control script. The passages you are missing are if'ed out by

if ($opts{'u'}) {



Are you possibly missing a command line option? Or are we missing it? See commit 20c7815702a7ded5749071dbf8d59d057959ef35.

Please give feedback, on how exactly create the debian-med package and if you need .udebs.
