selection by meta-packages

Bug #134907 reported by bgrupe on 2007-08-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

In my opinion it is confusing for casual users to select the debs themselves, it would be nice if you could select by meta package or software name.
Ideally there would be an interface like the one in "Add/Remove applications" and dependencies would be selected automatically.

Also I'd like to see the option of burning a whole apt section, like the possibility to select all games at once, which would help people creating dvds especially for games, multimedia or similar.
