Hmmmm, may be we should not ask how it looked before but rather what
should be the content of the tasksel file we *want* to create. I'm
pretty sure I did not messed with any tasksel options since I need to
admit that I have no idea about tasksel and its needed input. I
just trusted that if it works for some Blend it should work for
Debian Med as well. If it is **correct** that the now missing fields
Than everything is fine. I do not have spare cycles for the moment
to dive into tasksel docs but if these short entries looking like
