Bug#758116: tasksel: Allow to select Blends selection during installation - just "DE", "Web server", "Mail server" is NOT enough

Package: tasksel
Version: 3.14.1
Severity: normal
Tags: d-i


beeing inspired by bug #758096 (I was asked to separate this topic from
the topic of this bug) and the recent discussion on Blends list, I'd
like to add a pointer to the thread basically starting here:

Currently we can provide tasksel control files in the following
Blends (packages):

   Debian Edu     (edu-tasks)
   Debian Games   (games-tasks)
   Debian GIS     (gis-tasks)
   Debian Junior  (junior-tasks)
   Debian Med     (med-tasks)
   Debian Science (science-tasks)
   DebiChem       (debichem-tasks)

The packages contain a file


and the usual stuff in /usr/share/doc/<pkgname> but nothing else.  They
are exclusively designed as tasksel input.

IMHO it would do a nice service to our users to promote these topics on
our installers at the time when tasks will be selected.

Kind regards
