add an option to install "Recommended" packages too

Bug #315363 reported by Timo Aaltonen on 2009-01-09
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
pkgsel (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: pkgsel

Currently pkgsel/include installs only Depends, but now that the default installation pulls Recommends too it would be nice to change the behaviour of pkgsel/include to optionally do the same.

looks like "-o APT::Install-Recommends=false" is forced currently, so adding the support would be really easy. I can come up with a patch after next week.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Fix logic to check whether pkgsel/language-packs has been preseeded.

  [ Timo Aaltonen ]
  * Allow preseeding pkgsel/install-recommends to install what the
    packages on pkgsel/include Recommend. The default is false.
