It looks to me like a lot of packages that are only incuded due to being
in popularity-contest-etch are being included on CD 1, and these
packages that are part of the tasks, but not Key in it, are not. This is
why CD1 has tetex-* on it, for example (dependency of texinfo).

No, gnome-desktop-environment in its entirity gets onto CD1
(log.list2cds line 18549). Again, the Key packages in the task are all
included, while the rest are not.

What I don't understand is why this is happening, since Debian_etch
includes first task-essential-etch, then interesting-fromcd23,
task-full-etch, and only at the end popularity-contest-etch. And yet it
seems to be including packages from popularity-contest-etch before

As far as I can tell,
/org/cdimage.debian.org/setup/tmp/i386/etch-i386/list lists the
packages in the correct order, with gnome-desktop-environment before
gimp before texinfo, so it seems that list2cds must be scrambling this
ordering somehow.

debian-cd does not look at Recommends; d-i does not install recommends.

+ Trying to add pcmcia-cs...
  @dep before checklist = pcmcia-cs pcmciautils psmisc
  @dep after checklist = pcmcia-cs pcmciautils psmisc
  $cd_size = 346973580, $size = 400332
  Adding pcmcia-cs pcmciautils psmisc to CD 1 ...
pcmciautils has already been included.

+ Trying to add libsysfs1...
  @dep before checklist = libsysfs1
  @dep after checklist = libsysfs1
  $cd_size = 281692506, $size = 28524
  Adding libsysfs1 to CD 4 ...

Apparently something includes pcmciautils w/o including its deps, which
seems very broken of debian-cd to do.
