That seems right to me.

That's more or less how it is done for fluxbox. It seems to be right
to me. (in fluxbox the conf is directly copied into the user home
directory, I think that it is preferable to have the default shipped by
fedora in %_datadir/icewm. Also the whole menu is generated, not 
only an entry, but I modified it to have only an entry generated...).

# xscreensaver &

No, they should be brought in by pyxdg or similar, if it is not the
case it should be handled at that level, such that it is also right
in fluxbox, pekwm...

Isn't that done by session startup scripts?
I have checked, it is done in

It is not completely right, since the file isn't there, if I recall well
there is no .py in the original url

Please remove the dot at the end of the -gnome Summary.

Seems like we're not far from being done.
