Why should I veto? ;-) Do I really have veto rights or are we managing a
repository as a team?  I'm for all things who might have a practical use
and this is obviousely the case.  I think I will even bothering release
team to propagate Debian Med metapackages in freeze time because we need
to cover the state after the freeze (worked in past releases as well).

As you might have noticed I tried to sync the status of DebTags with our
tasks.  My feeling is that DebTags is nit as up to date that we could
use it for automatic generation of metapackages.  But that's irrelevant
for our current issue.

That's wrong!  If a depends is the proper relation, just use it.  The
change to Suggest will be done by blends-dev automatically if the
package is missing.

Thanks for this effort.  Charles, will you commit to SVN?
Kind regards
