Package: tasksel
Version: 3.33+devuan0.3
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

     * What led up to the situation?
     Installed task-xfce-desktop and some other task-* packages in jessie.

     * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or ineffective)?
     Upgraded from jessie to ascii.

     * What was the outcome of this action?
     The task-xfce-desktop package was uninstalled during
     upgrade and not installable again after upgrade.
     The tasksel package was not upgraded as the version
     in ascii is lower than the version in jessie.

     * What outcome did you expect instead?
     The tasksel and task-* packages should have been
     upgraded alongside all the other packages from jessie
     to ascii.

     tasksel and other task-* packages in ascii should have
     their versions updated to be equal to (or greater than
     if any changes from) the package versions in jessie.

     Debian has a newer version 3.39 in stretch.
