Re: Dselect docs for beginners
I've read your document, and though I'm obviously no good at figuring
out whether it'll be any good for beginners I've attached my one
detailed comment about it.
Thanks for your work !

I don't know whether it's really necessary to advise people not to
select any large packages at this stage. Everything ought to work
reasonably well if they just select what they want.
The defaults are supposed to be good and useful, and going with them
is almost always at least safe (if not optimal).
