Bug#860800: debian-edu: profile 'Minimal' installs much more than a minimal system.

Source: debian-edu
Version: 1.923
Severity: normal

The 'Minimal' should install a minimal system integrated into the Debian 
Edu network, thus depending on education-networked.

Due to 'tasks/networked:Depends: gosa-desktop' (and gosa-desktop 
depending on firefox-esr) a huge amount of packages gets installed 
leading to a non minimal system. 

(The package gosa-desktop provides a special firefox profile to access a
dedicated URL for password change via GOsa².)

Same applies if a pure main server (w/o a GUI) should be installed.

So please move 'gosa-desktop' to tasks/desktop-other.

Only drawback: A system with profile 'Standalone' would have 
'gosa-desktop' as well, which is useless in this case and might confuse 
users; see #854780 gosa-desktop: default url no longer working due to 
SSL errors.
So maybe cfengine could be used to purge the package gosa-desktop if
profile 'Standalone' is matched. This would require changes to package
