I am not sure, if we really want to exclude the official task-packages
from the users view. Everybody should understand, that
"linuxtag-desktop" has something to do with the LinuxTag-CDROM, but
still some people might just want to install task-gnome-desktop.

Anyway, if we decide to exclude the official tasks, I need the patched
version of tasksel ASAP to integrate and test it on the CDROM. Also a
patch to base-config will be required to execute tasksel with the
right option, maybe Torsten has this allready available?

The point is, that this would require a network connection for the
installation, since the sources are not on the CDROM. I guess, we
don't want this requirement.
