Hi guys,

Just poking at Kubuntu's initial seed lists, have some comments:

 * vino should not be in the seeds, KDE provides the same feature
 * you should probably swap xpdf for kpdf, given that it works well ;-)
 * xchat -> something?
 * tsclient -> kde equivalent (frontend to xvncviewer, rdesktop and friends)
 * all the gnome stuff in live seed will be fixed by merging latest ubuntu
   seeds, which no longer include it
 * remove epiphany-extensions from ship seed

 * there's still a bunch of gnome stuff in supported seed

 * you should be very careful about gstreamer depends for things like
   amarok-gstreamer - we don't depend on gstreamer0.8-plugins, because some
   of them are not appropriate for us to ship :-)

Very keen to watch Kubuntu take shape! :-)
