Bug#758116: tasksel: Allow to select Blends selection during installation - just "DE", "Web server", "Mail server" is NOT enough
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
Debian Edu (edu-tasks)
Debian Games (games-tasks)
Debian GIS (gis-tasks)
Debian Junior (junior-tasks)
Debian Med (med-tasks)
Debian Science (science-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.
