Bug#282493: tasksel: Please add a language task for Arabic

Package: tasksel
Version: 2.15
Severity: wishlist
Tags: l10n

Please add the attached arabic and arabic-desktop tasks proposed as early
versions of an Arabic task for tasksel, which could be auto-installed when
the language chosen in Debian Installer is Arabic.

These tasks are currently very rudimentary. They basically install the
needed fonts for having a correct GDM login screen with Arabic displayed
