What Metapackages does a standard Xubuntu Install have ?

We're trying to build an installer that is similar to a xubuntu installer
using the CDImage scripts and ran into a problem with missing packages. I
was under the impression that the xubuntu-desktop metapackage is solely
responsible for installing all packages needed to install the Xubuntu
system. And so we built an installer with the default metapackge selected
in the preseed, being xubuntu-desktop. The resulting system, though, was
missing some crucial packages such as cron, at, ed , telnet , wget etc. I
grep for these packages in the dependency lists of the xubuntu-desktop
metapackage but did not find them anywhere. This makes me believe that a
standard xubuntu installation has more contributing to it than just this 1
metapackage. Is that a correct assumption and if yes, then what other
metapackages do I need to install apart from xubuntu-desktop, to get a
standard xubuntu-install ?
