[Bug 1575198] Re: [RFE] ubuntu-installer/tasksel: OpenSSH server is not selected by default

I am pondering if openssh-server task, should have a Test- stanza which
checks apt-install file to see if openssh-server is scheduled to be
installed, and if so, mark the task to be installed.

However, that would also should be true for any other tasks for which
all key-packages are to be installed via apt-install.

  Request for enhancement:
  During Ubuntu 16.04 LTS server installation it is required to select manually the installation of OpenSSH server. For z Systems this should be enabled per default, since Linux on z Systems (in contradiction to other platforms) has only "rudimentary consoles" and always rely on a console reachable via ssh.
