  See the tasksel documentation, you only need to provide a file on
  /usr/share/tasksel/YOUR_TASK.desc with the tasks you want to provide.
  If you choose one of your tasks instead of the debian ones you have what you
  want (you can select your task on a presseding, if you only want one
  installation flavour).

  Ah, to install your tasksel description you need to install your package
  before base-config is run, I do that with an script that installs the
  packages before base-config is run, the script is provided by an udeb that
  installs a file on the installer's /usr/lib/prebaseconfig.d/ dir, but you can
  do it using other hooks, see:


  to see available hooks.
  Hope that helps, greetings,
