I still think suite:: retains some usefulness in conjunction with field::, but perhaps I didn't make myself clear enough. And perhaps also, everyone is so focused on debian-med's needs that we're not seeing the bigger picture: what do we do for CDDs in general?
It is possible that *any* arbitrary set of packages can be used to create a CDD. The field:: tags are a nice way for debian-med to divide their whole CDD into related subsets, but for other CDDs (like Debian Jr.) field:: doesn't make sense. All that a "suite::debian-med" designation would mean is "this package is in the Debian-med CDD". Similarly "suite::debian-jr" would mean "this package is in the Debian Jr. CDD". For a finer breakdown of what kind of package it is, see the other debtags for the package (in debian-med's case, field:: and works-with:: appear to be important, whereas for Debian Jr. use::, game::, etc. are more interesting).
Thoughts? Improvements to this? Rotten tomatoes?
