Fascinating as this discussion is, I think it is at risk of becoming
too much of a time sink. I think that it would be useful to have some
authoritative guidance from those in Debian who are responsible for
this decision. AFAICT that is the tasksel maintainers.
So I would appreciate it if the tasksel maintainers would let us know:
Do you intend to review (or are you reviewing) the decision taken in
July 2012  ? If so, is this discussion here on -devel useful ? If
it is useful, what questions should we be focusing on ?
