translation to be complete. You'll also need to translate the debconf
templates, of course.

Your language should be listed in LANGS and LANGS_DESC variables
in Makefile. (LANGS is for translations in po/, and LANGS_DESC
is for translations in tasks/po/.)
You should also translate the Descriptions of the task-* packages.
These are shown to the user when tasksel runs, so are actually
the most important thing to translate. This can be done via the
The Debian Description Translation Project:
<http://www.debian.org/intl/l10n/ddtp>
When translating the Descriptions, the ones that matter are those
tasks that are displayed to the user. Translating the Descriptions
of the language-specific tasks, which are not shown to the user,
is not a priority.

* Task packages are back! For now, the task-* metapackages are only
used to hold Depends and Recommends; all other task info that tasksel
uses remains in debian-tasks.desc. Plan is to migrate the rest into
the task packages later, where possible.

* FTP-master: I've put the task packages in a new section, "tasks",
which I hope you'll approve & create.
* Translators: DDTP translations of task packages are now displayed
by tasksel, so it's important that the (visible) tasks' descriptions
be translated there.
* Remove rarian-compat from task-gnome-desktop. Dependencies on
scrollkeeper should default to rarian-compat by now.
* Moved iceweasel to Recommends of task-desktop; was in Key/Depends.
