Bug#263162: Please describe your tasksel policy, and re-add the tex task

Package: tasksel
Version: 2.09
Severity: normal

In version 2.00, the tex task was removed, and the changelog says:

| Adopted new, stricter criteria for task additions. Removed the following
| tasks, which did not meet it: [...] tex

I could not find those criteria written in any of the bug reports, or
in /usr/share/doc/tasksel. There was also no explanation why
specifically the tex task (and the science task, too) was removed. 

I would be happy to cooperate with you and provide a new, better tex
task, but I need to know the criteria first.

Please note that I am on vacation until 2004-08-15. I think the other
maintainers of the teTeX packages at
debian-tetex-maint@lists.debian.org will also help you.

Regards, Frank
