No it should be based on the popularity-contest ... Martijn can you give
me a raw list of packages sorted by popularity (without dependency
checking since I already do it in debian-cd) ?

Don't you understand that we already include all the possible packages
listed in task-* packages in the first CD ? If you don't know why, check
tasks/Debian_potato in the debian-cd tree.
