Please hint poppler-data .

Although it is in non-free, it is essential to read PDF files created in
Asian languages. These data were in main packages but due to package
reorganization and better license review, it is in non-free.
nfortunately, there is no other ways to use pdf in Asian languages.

Also don't forget about suggesting to add it to the CJK languages
-desktop tasks in tasksel, if it is that important.

I think that non-free packages can be added there...

That's very very helpful for our users!

If not, users must edit their apt lines by hand, and know this
poppler-data package is needed to view PDF files, it's painful
thing for average users (Yes, I can do that easily, and you can
also do that, but your mother, father, little brother or sister
probably can't do that).

"Our priorities are our users and free software" - yeah, you know that,
"users" are important for us (not only free software)


So I and other Japanese Debian developer/maintainer/package maintainer/
users want poppler-data package to there, the CJK languages-desktop
tasks in tasksel. Please consider that.

The easiest way to have this to happen is by sending a wishlist bug
report against tasksel.

Though I'm not a maintainer of tasksel stuff, I think it's valid to
suggest the same to be done for Chinese(both simplified and traditional)
and Korean tasks as well, so that we save some bug number count
