* When running aptitude in debconf-apt-progress, pass -q to it to disable
incremental progress displays being logged to stderr, since eg in d-i that
results in a lot (possibly many megabytes) of download progress info in
the logs.
* Support backing up from tasksel if it is run as part of a larger
debconf-using program such as d-i; while tasksel will not enable the
backup capb itself, if it is enabled and the user chooses to back up, it
will exit with code 10. Note that this code, rather than 30, was chosen
to interoperate with d-i, which rather inexplicably uses 10 instead of 30
to signal backup across process boundries.

* Manual package selection is now less of a special case, with an actual
task entry for it that can have test scripts like other task entries,
* Check for running under the debconf frontend and if it is, do as much as
possible to avoid outputting non-debconf protocol to stdout, including:
- Don't display the manual task.
- Don't clear the screen before running aptitude.
* Use debconf-apt-progress during installs if available (except if the user
chooses manual selection), to get a fancy progress bar and completly limit
output when run inside debconf to debconf protocol output.
* Use debconf-apt-progress for removals too.
* Pass -y to aptitude remove.

* Key packages are always included in a task, and need not be explicitly
listed by the Packages field, although it's ok if they are.

whitespace, not just newlines.

get a working desktop task.

support printing of asian fonts. Closes: #305148

adding Test-force lines to tasks that force them to be installed,
skipped, marked, or shown, without needing to write any code,

- Allow later task descs to override earlier ones, useful if you
want to blow away the standard Debian tasks, perhaps by using Test-force
to hide them. Closes: #274936
- Add a "new-install" test script (and export NEW_INSTALL for test
scripts), to allow special control of tasks during new installs.
- Add a new "standard" task which defaults to being marked for install
on new installs and is otherwise hidden (because removing it makes
little sense), and which causes all standard or above priority packages
to be installed. Closes: #301273, #298702
- Remove the -r, -i, and -s switches as unnecessary given the standard
- Remove the -n switch since it was intended to be used with other removed
- Make the lang test only do anything on new installs, to avoid tasksel
looking at the LANG variable in everyday use.
- Rename Packages field in input task files to Packages-list to allow
really specifying a Packages value.

- Note in README that the way to get a task added is a bug report against
this package. Closes: #144533
- Removed broken python-bobo from python task. Closes: #180925
- The python task is retargeted at providing a subset of the more useful
python tools, instead of everything. Semi-randomly removed some stuff.
Someone who uses python might want to take over maintainership of this
- Capitalised first letter of every task, in an effort to look
"professional". Closes: #183109
- Removed the fortran task, not sufficiently used.
- Added mutt and spamassassin to mail server task.

to speed up (or turn off!) their disks. Closes: #87450
- Add menu to office task.

list was 2 years old.
- Cleaned up bad wording in most of the descriptions of the
language-specific tasks.
- Added sudo to unix-server.
- Added kernel-compile task for custom kernel building. Closes: #184428
- Blessed the idea of putting Maintainer fields in individual task files.
- Removed nonexistant packages from tasks: netscape-zh-resource-477,
dialdcost, hanterm, tktabble-dev
- Put cxterm-ks in korean task to replace hanterm. I hope that's right.
- Rename mozilla-locale-es to mozilla-locale-es-es.

chinese. doc-linux-zh-t went away.
- and use apt-cache dumpavail instead of
dselect available file, for more up-to-date information.
- Shortended the description of c-dev.

- Changed around what is Key and what is not, more changes than I can
record here.

as a Task: line, do not display it.

tasksel (1.24) unstable; urgency=low
* Add mozilla-locale-da to danish task and removed openoffice stuff.
* Fixed man page formatting.

tasksel (1.23) unstable; urgency=low
* Added to games task:
- vecteroids (asteroids clone)
- frozen-bubble
* Rebuilt against current gnome and kde metapackages.
-- Joey Hess <> Sat, 8 Feb 2003 12:29:07 -0500
tasksel (1.22) unstable; urgency=low
* Switched from emacs20 to emacs21. Closes: #152018
* Added Danish language task by Claus Hindsgaul <>.
* Fixed OOo name. Closes: #158936
* Patch from Jeff Licquia <> to make tasksel use all
*.desc files in /usr/share/tasksel, to allow third parties to drop in
their own additional tasks.
* This build, at least, will not contain CVS dirs in the source package
(because I build with DH_ALWAYS_EXCLUDE=CVS set, and pass -ICVS to
dpkg-buildpackage. Closes: #148759
* Added wireless-tools to the laptop task as laptops increasingly use
wireless cards. I think adding wavemon too is a bit too much.
Closes: #168948
* Make the tasksel menu entry work as non-root. Closes: #144340

tasksel (1.21) unstable; urgency=low
* This is aimed at sid, not woody.
* #include gnome metapackage in desktop task, no need to track gnome
* Added an "office" task, which will include openoffice when it is in
debian, and currently includes the stuff in gnome-office. IIRC we three
talked about such a package for woody, but there did not seem to be enough
to put in it; there certianly is now.
-- Joey Hess <> Thu, 20 Jun 2002 16:59:22 -0400
tasksel (1.20) unstable; urgency=low
* Added Essential: fields to all task files. The idea is to skip display of
a task if all of its essential packages are not available, which will make
it easier to make CD's that include some package that happens to be in a
task, without having to drag in that whole task or get the confusing
situation of having tasksel display the task, but install only one
ancillary package from it.
* Changed python task to use python instead of non-existant python-base.
This task still needs a lot of work.
* Updated Danish translation da.po by Claus Hindsgaul <>
* Updated to use debhelper v4 and misc:Depends; removed outdated copyright
info from debian/rules.

either have no available file, or don't have kde in the availabe file
(woody systems).

tasksel (1.17) unstable; urgency=medium
* Removed junkbuster from dialup; probably not going to ship with woody, if
it manages to somehow it is really in too bad shape to expose newbies to
it. Closes: #131295
* (Slipstream release foiled by the NI system. :-)
-- Joey Hess <> Tue, 26 Feb 2002 13:30:42 -0500
tasksel (1.16) unstable; urgency=medium
* Added, and let the desktop task use it to explode the
kde metapackage, so its entire dep list is put in the task, and if it does
not ship with woody, we still will get kde. Closes: #135797
* The same include mechanism should probably be used for the other
metapackages, like the junior stuff (and X?). But not right now.
-- Joey Hess <> Tue, 26 Feb 2002 11:17:36 -0500
tasksel (1.15) unstable; urgency=low
* Include sawfish-gnome in desktop task so gnome will have a WM.
Closes: #116609, #129999
* Make the basic-desktop task incude all of x-window-system (so it gets a
WM and xterm and so on), while the desktop task uses just
x-window-system-core (because it already has a WM and so on from
gnome and kde). Closes: #129217
* Removed pydb from python task, because Colin Watson said to.
Closes: #129520
* it.po translation added, da.po added (Closes: #122668), ja.po updated,

tasksel (1.5) unstable; urgency=high
* tasksel changes by Anthony Towns
- data.c: Made tasksel process fields after the long description. This was
stopping tasksel for handling the new Packages files that actually
include Task: headers, so it's kinda useful. :)
- tasksel.c: When no tasks are present, print a trailing newline.
-- Anthony Towns <> Mon, 2 Jul 2001 13:38:27 +1000
tasksel (1.4) unstable; urgency=high
* Modifications to existing tasks by Joey Hess
- added language-env to all language tasks that it supports
- added netatalk to file-server and print-server
- renamed modem to dialup, and added stuff for isdn and pppoe to it.
Also removed a few things like lynx from the task.
- added aviword to desktop, so there is a basic word processor in there
- added gimp to desktop too, it's too handy not to be there
- added lyx to tex
* New tasks by Joey Hess:
- web-server -- currently includes only the bare basics, suggestions
- unix-server -- a conventional unix server, fully loaded with most of
the standard unix daemons and userland for console users.
* Adam Di Carlo:
- stop shipping upstream ChangeLog
- number this like a Debian package
- set urgency to high to cram this into woody for base freeze
- update our description
-- Adam Di Carlo <> Mon, 28 May 2001 21:03:47 -0400
tasksel (1.3-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Modifications to existing tasks:
- Replaced talk of "this [meta]package" with "this task", and like
- In l10n tasks, s/-speaking// for consistency.
- Make all l10n tasks include locales. It's in base, so this is of
dubious utility, but some had it and some not.
- Changed short descriptions of basic-desktop and desktop in an attempt
to clarify how they're different.
- Added some comments here and there for unresolved issues.
- Largely rewrote Debian Jr. descriptions.
- Added menu to desktop task.
- Rejiggered mail-server, to be a general purpose mail server, not just
- Moved samba-server to file-server, and made that include nfs stuff
- Added a print-server task, that also includes samba, along with other
- Killed debian-dev(el) task, since it does not meet our task criteria
-- nowhere near 10% of debian users are debian developers (we hope!),
and probably not enough regular users will use this package to make
up the difference. This is my own package, so I'm willing to be
persuaded otherwise, though..
- Removed misc window managers from the desktop task. It is unnecessary
to list them there, since anXious will let the user choose.
- Killed the demo tasks.
- Went for consistent capitalization of the short descriptions. Just
capitalize proper names. I'm not sure if I like this effect, we may
want to capitalize the first word of each description too.
- Sundry other changes of little note.
* Replaced several occurrances of "task packages" with "tasks" elsewhere
in tasksel.
* Added -a switch, to show all tasks, even empties. Mostly useful before
we get tasks into the Packages files, for a global overview of how the
system will eventually look.
* Added lint check to -- it will warn at build time
about tasks that list unavailable packages. This caught several
references to virtual packages, etc already, that need to be fixed..
* VERSION in Makefile automatically tracks this changelog.
-- Joey Hess <> Tue, 22 May 2001 22:36:00 -0400
tasksel (1.3-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Joey Hess:
- Added support for task description files.
- Read in /usr/share/tasksel/debian-tasks.desc as a task description
- Added, a program to generate a task description file from
a set of task descriptions.
- Got rid of all the name prettification code since it is no longer used
- Killed filterdescription, the task packages in woody actually don't
have that problem anymore.
- Don't move cursor to the right after a task is selected.
- Removed unused from source package (keep pod).
- Fixed an obscure bug if a task package happened to be the last thing in
the available file.
- Enable debug mode by default, but turn it off when building from the
rules file.
* Anthony Towns:
- Fix memory allocation bug when do a fake task- package
- Port most of the interesting tasks to the tasks file.
- Fix to cope with +'s in a task name (c++-dev)

tasksel (1.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Use "Section:" fields to break tasks into different sections. Have a
hardcoded list of default sections, with a defined order; remaining
sections get added to the end, in alphabetical order. Sections that
don't match "tasks-*" are ignored.
* "tasksel install foo bar baz" as a replacement for "apt-get install
task-foo task-bar task-baz"
* Increase the size of the "apt-get install" command line buffer.
-- Anthony Towns <> Tue, 15 May 2001 15:02:01 +1000
tasksel (1.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Support "Task:" headers to include a package in a task.
Syntax is:
Package: foo
Task: bar, baz, quux
Note that tasks still require a task-* package in order to have a
description. Frontends could conceivably treat a task-foo package
being installed as meaning "automatically install new packages with
a Task: foo field, but don't worry about old packages that weren't
installed", similar to dselect's Standard handling, I think.
Patch thanks to Anthony Towns <>
