Bug#704748: Not a practical issue (could even be considered a feature...:-))

For all the problems OdyX mentioned from testing, I've found a single
cause and filed bug #705435.  I've updated this page to demonstrate a

For something as important as dropping a desktop environment from the
release, I'd like to have seen discussion take place with debian-bsd@
copied in;  this came as just a bit of a surprise.

Of course, someone else could NMU this and I'll help however I can, but...

If the severity of this is downgraded, that as an incentive for this to
be missed out of any NMU or refused an unblock.

I felt certain this was an RC bug and/or policy violation.  A package, a
task, a whole desktop environment became uninstallable on two release
architectures.  We still have a tasksel option for GNOME (fails with apt
error 100 due to this) and CD's are being built with its packages.
