Remark: There is a not yet documented convention (convention means, we
are just doing this in Debian Med as a kind of structural comment which
is not (yet) used) to use
X-Begin-Category / X-End-Category
in the tasks files to separate different topics. This might or might
not lead to a later split of the task - for the moment it is simple
documentation because fields starting with "X-" are ignored anyway.
Following this scheme I did the merge while keeping the categories
enclosed in these comments.

I checked your changes in tasks/workstation and they were not more up to
date than my changese I did previosely when splitting and updating the
tasks. I did not touched README and build-gis-live before but took your
changes now over into Blends SVN (Rev. 2245). There is one remaining
diff from pkg-grass SVN to Blends SVN which is debian/control. This is
intentionally because the old debian/control does not apply to the
current metapackage layout. I would commit this file after having
autogenerated this using blends-dev once we are settled to a reasonable
May I assume that your question about updating the Blends SVN is some
kind of agreement that we stick to this for the moment? Do we want to
just drop a README about the move in the old pkg-grass SVN, just to make
sure people will notice?
BTW, I have not checked build-gis-live but I would recommend building it
based on the set of (to be created) metapackages. At least this is the
favourised procedure in the Blends scope (even if there is not yet
an implementation to generalise this for all Blends).
