Package: tasksel
Version: 1.40
Priority: wishlist

I was wondering wether to submit this a bug or not or mail these thoughts 
privately to Joey, but since I think others might want to comment on 
them.... here it goes:

- web_server:
	* Should it mention Apache explicitly? (the RDBMs task does mention 
	* Shouldn't it build a full LAMP environment? i.e. php4, probably
	with some additional "common" modules like libphp-adodb, php4-ldap, 
	php4-odbc, php4-mysql, php4-pgsql... and with its documentation 
 	* Shouldn't it install apache-ssl instead of apache?

- file-server: 
	* The description should be more verbose, it should mention that 
	the file server is going to use the NetBIOS and NFS protocols.

- broadband:
	* Should use xDSL instead of DSL.
	* I don't really see there's much difference over the dialup task, 
	besides pppoe/dhcpd....
	* Should it include a P2P client? Edonkey client? (amule, 
	mldonkey...)  Gnutella? Or maybe bittorrent? 
	Maybe that is streching the definition a bit... 
	However rsync might be appropiate (to setup personal mirrors)
	and bittorrent is also frequently used over broadband connections
	for legitimate purposes (operating system distribution ISOs...)

- tex:
	* Should describe what TeX is something like:
	"This task provides necessary packages for composing 
	documents in TeX/LaTeX.
	TeX/LaTeX is a powerful document processing system 
	that allows markup to describe the structure of a document, so that the
	user need not think about presentation."

- desktop:	
	* GNOME is in testing, isn't it? Should it be re-added?

- office:
	* Should it include also gnome-office or koffice instead of _only_
	openoffice+gnumeric (to be consistent with the fact that the
	desktop environment includes GNOME+KDE). If so the description
	should be enhance to say "multiple word processor and spreadsheets"

- games:
	* Include freeciv?

Closing this bug since everything in it has been addressed or is out of

The one exception is that the web server task still doesn't mention that
it installs apache. I think it's redundant to do so since apache is the
most used web server.
