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)
-- Joey Hess <> Thu, 17 May 2001 14:47:06 -0400
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 <>
