Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kubuntu-desktop

as far as I know, is not recommended to remove the package kubuntu-desktop, but it has a lot of dependences. In example, it requires wlassistant (wireless assistant) but is only useful on laptops. In my case I use knetworkmanager..
So my suggestion is to reduce the number of dependences to the minimal (kdebase, konqueror, x-windows and so on, so people can personalize their installation and can make a succesful upgrade for next version.
Additionaly, the package can be splitted in two, an essential package and another installed by default wich can include the actual selection of packages (openoffice, wireless assistant, maybe some games....).

Sorry my english :)
