Any objections? As a side note, pkgsel calls tasksel with --new-install, but maybe others are using this flag outside d-i contexts. So I'd probably add a --internal-tasks-only there. As another side note, tasksel-data in Debian only has: /usr/share/tasksel/descs/debian-tasks.desc while latest Ubuntu has: /usr/share/tasksel/descs/debian-tasks.desc /usr/share/tasksel/descs/ubuntu-tasks.desc so it would be nice to support all desc files shipped in tasksel-data rather than hardcoding debian-tasks.desc when the --internal-tasks-only flag is passed. Martin, I think this would go along the lines of the idea you mentioned briefly on IRC? KiBi.
