Bug#757882: pkgsel: [text frontend] No feedback right after selecting the software tasks

Package: pkgsel
Version: 0.42
Severity: normal


This is a problem only with the test frontend, used by our speech
synthesizer version. This can be tested easily by booting the installer
with the "Install with speech synthesis" boot entry.

Right after answering the "Software selection" tasksel question, one
does not get any feedback, so the user is wondering whether it's
installing anything.

AIUI, the issue is that the title, "Select and install software", has
already been printed above, before the tasksel question, and when
getting back to pkgsel, the title is not printed again.

Perhaps it would be possible to separate software selection and
installation, so that we have two titles?
