IMO, there is one important app:

* evince: it's depending on libgnome{,ui,vfs,keyring} and pushing them
on the iso. This is not too much hard work (updating the patches from
the 0.5.2-0ubuntu7 version), a bit long though; I wanted to do it, but I
didn't have the time/motivation, sorry :/ (see I think
Jani should be able to help since he made the previous patches.

Then there are some wishlist items:

* update-notifier: currently, xubuntu users are not notified of packages
updates, unless they install this app which depends on libgnomeui and
libgnomevfs (see

* libgnome2-perl: this would allow us to ship a debconf graphical
frontend (see

There may be other apps, but I can't remember now...

Thanks :)
