Don't use the task-fields method to list packages unless you plan to
edit your Packages file using an overrides file to add Task fields to
all the packages in your task. The task-fields method does not install even
Key packages unless they have a suitable Task field, since it just tells
aptitude to select the entire task for install. You can see this if you run
tasksel with the -t switch.

It's much easier for a CDD to use the list method:

Task: xfce-desktop
Section: user
Relevance: 8
Description: XFCE Desktop environment
Packages: list
Test-desktop: 1
