I'd tell you in IRC, but whoops, for no apparent reason I've been banned
from the channel.  Probably by someone who has said in the past that
#debian-devel should be "open to all"...gotta love those double standards.

We have "package sets".

Here's an example:


$ cat /usr/share/package-sets/progeny/xemacs.contents

$ cat /usr/share/package-sets/progeny/xemacs.description
 XEmacs is an enhanced version of Emacs, the extensible, customizable,
 self-documenting real-time display editor.  This package includes
 XEmacs as well as an updated version of the Gnus news reader that is
 newer than the version included with XEmacs.

You can override the contents (off the top of my head, not sure about the
description) by creating a file in, e.g., /etc/package-sets/xemacs.contents .
