tasksel (3.34ubuntu3) xenial; urgency=medium
* Revert Ubuntu-specific change which no longer makes sense now that
Choices-C for the relevant questions holds task names rather than short
descriptions (LP: #1530397):
- Canonicalise tasksel/first or tasksel/tasks preseeding before
displaying the main tasks question, in order that unseen preseeding of
task names rather than descriptions works correctly.
* Rework code to include preseeded tasks in the choices list on new
installs regardless of filtering, since it was previously entangled with
the canonicalisation code.

tasksel (3.34ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium
* Re-add the installation of filter-tasks in Makefile, it was mistakenly
dropped in the merge. (LP: #1528530)
