The file I used is:
# mirror origin server

# mirror destiny directory

# extra files list to be downloaded (this accepts regular expressions)
files=README doc/ tools/ indices/ dists/sid/main/installer-i386/current/


I suppose "include-task" param wants a file that contains a list (one
per line) of packages that have to be dowloaded.

Hope this help.
