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

-Packages: list
- abacas
- abyss
- acedb-other
- ...

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

Task: med-bio
Parent: debian-med
Section: debian-med
Description: Debian Med bioinformatics packages
 This metapackage will install Debian packages for use in molecular biology,
 structural biology and other biological sciences.
Test-new-install: mark show

are OK than I'm fine and we can close the bug.

Sorry for my lack of education in this field
