True - come to think of it, I really don't believe that it is QA's
domain to define the task list - but it should be somebody's. What I
don't want is the feature creep of the "minimal" package set - next
thing you know, GNOME will be part of that package set. But I don't
think that QA is the appropriate place to address those concerns :)
