Re: r72930 - trunk/src/debian-edu-config/debian

Bringing the topic to debian-edu@, to discuss if this should be done
or not.

It is technically not very hard.  It would involve asking a debconf
question before pkgsel is running in d-i, and setting the
tasksel/desktop debconf value.  This is the same operation that is
done based on the desktop=kde/gnome kernel argument used to select
gnome vs. kde vs xfce vs ... at the moment.

The problematic part is explaining to teachers installing Debian Edu
for the first time what the options mean and why they should be forced
to select one of them.  Perhaps it only should show up in
debian-edu-expert installation mode?

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
