Ok, that I understand :)

To me a GNOME desktop is whatever www.gnome.org says is part of GNOME. I
don't get task-gnome-minimal :P  (after previous discussions here I
learned to ignore that and use task-gnome:)

I know drakconf is a suggests, etc, just thought it would be a suggests
elsewhere (another task-*, maybe *x11* something, etc). E.g.

  task-kde4-minimal -> task-graphical
  task-gnome-minimal -> task-graphical

  task-graphical -> drakconf, etc

Then you'd only have to add something like drakconf in one place. The
task-graphical is a ugly though. It wouldn't make sense to install
"task-graphical" (you'd only get drakconf and some other stuff).

That said, I fully understand the "same experience as when choosing the
desktop during installation". So let's stop the discussion :)
