Dear Debian Multimedia maintainers,

in the alpha-6 release of the Debian installer, a preliminary way was
introduced to install a default package selection for each Debian Pure


To get this alive, it is needed to define which tasks shall be included
into the package selection. The easiest way here is to put a keyword

Install: true

into the headers of all tasks which should be installed by default if
the Multimedia blend is selected. If this is unsuitable for your blend,
you may also directly edit the Multimedia section in
"debian-blends-tasks.desc" of the "blends" package source (or send me a
patch so that I can do it).


Note that in the current implementation only one checkbox per Blend is
foreseen. Personally, I believe this is the best compromise we can get
here. Please join the discussion in the Debian-Blends mailing list if
you have other opinions here.


The bug containing the discussion about the implementation:


If you think that you don't want to be listed by the default Debian
installer, you can just ignore (and close) this bug.

Best regards
