 Building Task Packages

UserLinux talks about building Task Packages.

"Task" packages are packages that do not install any software of their own, but depend upon a list of packages that you'd need for a particular "task". For example, operating a desktop, or a server. Installing the task package causes all of the packages it depends upon to be installed. You don't need to be a programmer to generate them. You really only need to know how to use the shell and edit some text files."
