Right.  You need to be a project member.  Should I add you to the
debian-edu alioth project?

Yes.  The education-common metapackage is the equvalent of the
education-common tasksel task, and it is pulled in by all profiles
availabe for installation by the Debian Edu installer.  See
interdepend.dot for the dotty graph of the dependencies.

education-tasks is the package containing the tasksel data file to
allow it to install our tasks.

Actually, the config stuff in debian-edu is in a completely different
package.  If I got it right, the <CDD>-common package contain config
and menu overrides, while in Debian Edu, that is done by the
debian-edu-config package.

Happy hacking,
