Bug#704748: task-gnome-desktop: uninstallable on kfreebsd-*

Christian PERRIER <bubulle@debian.org> (09/04/2013):
> After some resyncing in master (it still had the "drop menu" change),
> I come up with the attached debdiff wrt 3.14+nmu1.

Couldn't we just pretend 3.14+nmu1 never happened? See below.

Did you see the netcfg upload? Having that in a task is slightly
different (especially for already-installed systems), but I think the
netcfg part is sufficient.

Not convinced it's still time to do such things. Not sure of the
impact on installer images, either.

If we were to keep that change (still not sure, waiting for Steve to
comment on whether we want tasksel or debian-cd patched at this
point), it would be nice to mention a Recommends was added in that
version, rather than changed from a previous version that didn't
really exist.

Why not.

From tasksel (3.14+deb7u1), which you didn't mention:

Why not.

Not certain, and see above, keep that only in 3.15.

> +  * Drop menu from the desktop task. Closes: #699390

6 months into the freeze? I'm not sure we want that at this point,
but I won't stop release managers from asking for its being merged
if they were so inclined.
