Paldo uses Gnome as default desktop. What about making a fork with XFCE as default desktop? I'm on it to do it. Now I've some questions before doing it:

What is minimal needed to run Paldo with X?

Thats the packages in paldo-desktop-base:

paldo-base
lsb-graphics
lsb-desktop
x-window-system
gnome-icon-theme
gnome-session
metacity
gnome-panel
nautilus
gnome-control-center
gnome-terminal
bug-buddy
file-roller
gedit
gedit-plugins
gcalctool
gconf-editor
gnome-user-docs
gnome-applets
gnome-system-monitor
gnome-system-tools
gnome-themes
gnome-utils
gtk-engines-2
yelp
gdm
gucharmap
notification-daemon
wireless-applet
xdg-utils
pam_keyring

So I think from this package I only need these:

paldo-base
lsb-graphics
lsb-desktop
x-window-system
gtk-engines-2
gdm
notification-daemon
wireless-applet
xdg-utils

Paldo-desktop has these packages:

paldo-desktop-base
paldo-development-desktop
paldo-multimedia
paldo-graphics
paldo-office
quick-lounge-applet
bookmark-applet
gnome-keyring-manager
paldo-disk-tools-desktop
paldo-networking-desktop
paldo-hardware-desktop
deskbar-applet
nautilus-open-terminal
nautilus-sendto
nautilus-image-converter
eiciel
gnome-backgrounds
gnome-themes-extras
zenity
msttcorefonts

I need only these:

paldo-desktop-base (modified)
xfce-desktop
gparted
xchat
synaptics
eggcups
radeontool
"hal" tag="device-manager"
msttcorefonts

Or I'm totally wrong with this thoughts?

There is no absolute correct or wrong here as many applications are suitable for both desktops. Your proposal might work but e.g. this won't install any office or graphics application, etc.

Please note that I won't be able to help you with this as we focus on one application per task for the core paldo distribution and I don't have time for other versions.
