"I did the change after writing here and having been ignored for a
couple of days."

-> LOL

You modified the seeds the same day as you launched this thread...

The reasons have already been given, Xubuntu ships XFCE so we take
XFCE applications, except xfbrun and xfmedia which are totally broken,
unusable (choose what you want)... Feel free to install whatever you
want after that. There is no point in duplicating what is done in

"Look at Ubuntu, do you think the direction of the distro is made based
on number of bugs closed or packages uploaded? No, it is made by
talking, figuring out goals and acting on them. We do not have such a
formal proces, but talking is a must in our case as well."

Or maybe because they developp things, fix things, and package things
without a Jani to make their work impossible...
