[RFC] DEP-6: Meta-Package debian/control field

Hello people,
per the DEP process described at http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep0/, this is
the first call for comments on this proposal.

        Title: Meta-Package debian/control field
        DEP: 6
        State: DRAFT
        Date: 2009-12-20
        Drivers: David Paleino <dapal@debian.org>, Luca Bruno <lethalman88@gmail.com>
        URL: http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep6

         Introduce the usage of a new field in debian/control, Meta-Package,
         to mark "meta-packages" as such, and allow easy choice of
         installed packages, without being bitten by the "autoremove"
         feature of package management tools.

Have a nice day,
