Your response to my answer highlights the problem with selecting apps for a distro.  The guidelines can't be too rigid as that would be too limiting, so they tend to end up rather vague to the point of non-existent.  I would be interested if any other distro has nay sort of guidelines publish some where that we may be able to use as a start.  At the moment the best we have, as far as I can tell, is that it must function in 128 MiB of RAM.
I think I'll add this to the agenda for the nest meeting.
For Precise Pangolin I think we should stick with what we've got so the few devs we have can get the transition from GTK2 to GTK3 sorted.
If somebody would like to start a wiki or something so people can suggest a suite of apps we could discuss this and take a vote for the release at the end of the year (Quixotic Quagga :)
