Re: d-i broken as of yesterday with debian/testing + other 'unofficial' archives

ok - is there a way to stop tasksel entirely from being run?

for me, it serves no immediate purpose - but later on i _do_ want to
run it, manually, and then fill-in-the-blanks.

alternatively, is there a way anyone can think of for me to get my _own_
patched version of tasksel - over a netboot install - without having the
gpg-related question cos i'm using non-debian-trusted archives ?

clues really appreciated.
