Great. So tell me which task packages besides the ones your
task-linuxtag packages depend on shall be included. Torsten, where can

I don't think it's necessary. If somebody wants to have the sources we

I've changed it like Marcelo proposed to:

# Für weitere Informationen über diese Datei rufen Sie die Manpage zu
# sources.list(5) auf. Beachten Sie bitte, dass sie nur http, ftp oder
# file URIs benutzen. CDROMs werden durch das ,apt-cdrom' Tool
deb potato main contrib non-free
deb potato/non-US main contrib
deb potato/updates main contrib non-free

# Kommentieren Sie die folgenden Einträge aus, wenn die ,apt-get source'
# Funktion benutzen möchten.
#deb-src potato main contrib non-free
#deb-src potato non-US

# Die folgenden Einträge sind vollkommen *unoffiziell* und müssen nicht
# Qualität der anderen offiziellen Debian Paketen entsprechen.

# KDE 1.x
#deb potato kde contrib

# KDE 2 Beta Snapshots
#deb potato kde2

# Helix-Gnome
#deb unstable
