Hey Jesse, thanks for making the depsolved package list available.
I noticed some things are still missing:
beagle (multiple packages) - unless we are ready to switch to
tracker, we should probably include beagle. And I'm not convinced
that we are ready to switch...
planner - some apps that we probably want to include
xchat-gnome - not so sure about this one
transmission - I don't know which of these is better, but we should
include at least one gui bittorrent client.
cups-libs - as much as we all hate printing, we will have to include
hplip - and unfortunately, these 2 will be needed too, I think.
sane (multiple) - if we support printing, we should also support
linuxwacom - ...and maybe tablets ?
totem-mozplugin - some nice pieces of glue to make the desktop work
sysreport - basic debugging support
system-config-lvm - given that lvm is the default...
The following may be handy and/or required in certain situations,
