I dont say that he knows nothing.

I dont care :)
If it works: Fine. If not: That could be bad. But i wont patch it. I
would use patched versions for the CD, but i dont patch it myself.
Because my programming skills are not good enough.

The mail from Roland was then useless too.
If i only want to do it myself i never posted here. But i dont like a
comment like "Get lost" and nothing else.

After a quick look into the tasksel task Files it could be that it
only displays Tasks we have. Or better: Tasks for which we have all
Packages marked Essential. But im not really sure about that.
