(NOTE: please dont' take this personally...you are one of *MANY* who hold
this same opinion about the tasks for KDE...and you are not complaining but
rather asking so I'm not even near upset about this...)
Ok...The ONLY purpose I have for the tasks for KDE is to create fake packages
that make up each of the individual kde* upstream packages.
task-kdenetwork = kdenetwork
task-kdeadmin = kdeadmin
If I keep taking out subpackages because they depend on other packages not
found in the main packages then I'm going to end up with a bunch of
tasks that only suggest other packages.
Where does one draw the line? If I make all the sub task-* packages suggests
then task-kde would be pretty pointless...
as it is now, there is no way for one to just do a apt-get install task-kde
and get EVERY KDE package...
there is no real clean way to handle tasks at the moment and the current
task packages sucks I know..but...
my opinion is that yea..so what if a apt-get install task-kde installs ppp,
or installs something else you don't want (I can understand the gripes about
a ftp server being installed)...don't use apt-get install for install tasks.
use dselect, console-apt, or one of the other programs that are coming out.
fine tune you install.
