I hope to find some time for coding Blends issue at DebCamp / DebConf.
Once I will be able to implement a plan (I think from now ten years ago)
to "resolve metapackages dependencies" on the tasks pages (which came a
lot closer at hand since last years sprint) I might come up with some
sensible implementation for a pure Debian Bio Blend containing those
fine grained Bio tasks while Debian Med simply stays with med-bio.

This goes beyond the current technique and I have no idea how to
implement this for the moment.

BTW, if we really establish the ontology specification for *all* our
packages - which is *work* I can not do since I'm simply lacking the
necessary knowledge - we could base our tasks design also on this data.
While this is looking far into the future I'd consider this a nice
application of the edam data for Debian Med.
