Why ? There's already this in build.sh :
make list COMPLETE=1 SIZELIMIT1=555000000 SRCSIZELIMIT=665000000
And the same in build_all.sh... (though I may have forgotten to commit the
changes I did for *SIZELIMIT*)

If TASK is not supplied, the Makefile will compute the correct TASK
filename for the distribution beeing built :

No, that's not possible. Can you prove what you're telling ? Or were you

Hehe, it simply uses the task-* packages that are in the distribution.
And it uses "apt-cache depends" to get the dependency information :

$ apt-cache depends task-gnome-desktop
  Depends: task-x-window-system-core
  Depends: gnome-session
  Depends: gnome-panel
  Depends: gnome-control-center
  Depends: imlib-base
  Depends: gnome-terminal
  Depends: gmc
  Depends: esound
  Depends: gnome-users-guide-en
  Depends: gnome-faq

No, the task files in CVS are no more used. The packages are the
