Bug Description

Stable update justification: This bug is mostly cosmetic in itself (since not many people will want to install live CD packages on a real system), but the description clash exacerbates bug 150252. Please see the more detailed description there.

TEST CASE: Start tasksel and check that the descriptions are unique. Pretty self-explanatory.

Original bug report follows:

Tasksel lists two times "Kubuntu live CD" at the end of the list, so the user doesn't know which one to choose.

Scenario 1:
One of the entries is Kubuntu with KDE 3.5 and the other is with KDE 4.0
Suggested solution: rename the entries with "Kubuntu live CD (KDE 3.5)" and "Kubuntu live CD (KDE 4.0)"

Scenario 2:
Both entries do the same thing.
Suggested solution: remove one of them :P

Other scenario's are possible, but I can't think of any other. ;)

This is fixed in Jaunty since the separate KDE4 tasks have been removed (now integrated into the main Kubuntu tasks) but this bug is still relevant to Hardy and Intrepid.

Upgraded from intrepid-proposed:
tasksel (2.73ubuntu11.1)
tasksel-data (2.73ubuntu11.1)

I can confirm the success of the fix. Tasksel now lists two different entries:
[ ] Kubuntu KDE 4 live CD
[ ] Kubuntu live CD

(I don't have a Hardy installation nearby now. But over three days I'm back home, where there is a running Hardy.)
