Bug#304845: tasksel: desktop task has incomplete printing support

Package: tasksel
Version: 2.24
Severity: normal

This is my first time using tasks and I'm not very familiar with cups,
so pardon me if I have the wrong idea about how this is supposed to
work.  I just installed a Debian unstable system (using a
debian-installer snapshot and changing sources.list to use unstable)
selecting only the desktop task.  This resulted in the following cups
packages being installed:


Since this doesn't include a cups server, the GNOME printer manager
fails with "The CUPS server could not be contacted.".  It seems to me
that a desktop task should include working printer support.
