# makedesc directory file
# Scan the directory for files, and use the files to generate a task
# description file. The format of the task description file is described in
# tata.c. The format of the input files is:
# Task: desktop
# Section: user
# Description: Provide a basic GUI system
# This task provides functionality for a basic desktop; whether Gnome
# based, KDE based or customised. With this task, your system will boot
# into a graphical login screen, at which point you can choose which of
# these desktops you wish to use on a per-user basis. You can further
# customise your desktop once installed.
# Packages:
# kdebase
# gdm
# ...
# Hash-comments are allowed in the files, but must be on their own lines.
