Bug#825004: blends-dev: undesired new Task $blend-all package

Package: blends-dev
Version: 0.6.93
Severity: important


since 0.6.93 blends-dev creates a new $blend-all package which is *not*
useful for all blends, so there should be a way to disable that.

In the case of debian-edu it creates an education-all package which
depends on packages which conflict which each other (eg standalone and
main-server, but there are more).

For the Debian Edu usecase such a $blends-all package must not be created.

Please make this behaviour optional and opt-in. As it stands this is a
major regression on the usability of the package.


this is how debian/control looks after running "make dist" on the
debian-edu source package in sid now:
