a) ERM? old list? i looked at isn't
this the authoritative list?

b) we NEED the official task-packages because my depend on them,
why should i do some unnecessary work? :) anyway, torsten patched
tasksel in this way that you can pass a prefix to tasksel and it
will select those task packages which have the given prefix, like
displaying just task-linuxtag* which would be fine in our case.
it will go upstream if i understood tausq correctly but he will
return today or tomorrow to integrate it upstream.
