Bug#758116: Please be verbose whether you would like to get your Blend promoted by tasksel

Greetings, Fellow Debianites,

yesterday I joined the videostream of the installer BoF at DebConf[1].
I also became a bit involved via IRC.  Joey Hess raised the question
about the criteria to add a Blend or not.  I answered "all in the list
of the bug report #758116" which IMHO fits the criterion of "actively
maintained and some valuable content for users".

I think it should be also a criterion that the team behind the Blend
confirms that they are interested and so I'm hereby pinging all lists in
question to ask you for confirmation.  I have set Reply-To to the bug
report and the general Blends list in case you are interested in further
discussion with other Blends.

Any input is welcome to make sure users will realise the fruits of your
great work at the earliest point in time.

Yes, I have to say that I would find it awesome if we could list at
install time the blends that are available. In my opinion, this
feature would undoubtedly help the user and give the feeling that
"things are cleverly organised in Debian" and that "everything is made
to simplify the system installation", which is of great importance if
we think that Debian still has the reputation of being difficult to
deal with at install time.

Thanks, Andreas to bring this forward for us not at the DebConf or not
immediately involved with the installer-related topics.
