Will we get any comments on this proposal, or is it just silently

I think it is very important to install popcon by default. Moreover,
the switch to the new tasksel broke existing software, which would
be a critical bug on any Debian system. Why is it tolerated during
d-i development?

d-i is currently unofficial. What do we care about existing
automatic installs? There can't be that many, so it can't be that
much of a deal to add the single line to each of their preseeding

Thanks for any comments?
