The education-* Buster meta-packages differ a lot from the Stretch ones.
 - A lot of superfluous Depends. (Only one additionally needed in 
   Jessie: gosa-plugin-netgroups via some hackish trick.)
 - No evaluation of the missinglist packages. (Packages kept as
   recommended dispite beeing unavailable.)

Just for testing I reworked the Debian Edu tasks files (basically 
s/Depends/Recommends/g). Using these files, this seem to work:
 - Using added (forced) depends.
 - Dropping the education-all package.
 - Correctly de-promoting non-available packages from Recommends to 
 - Correctly de-promoting contrib and non-free packages (only added 
   for testing purposes) from Recommends to Suggests.

I don't have more time atm (and the results should be confirmed by 

Thanks for your work.
