Are you (not specifically you thomas :p)  going to check again the basesystem 
dependencies/requirements, if i remember correctly the basesystem in mandriva is 
not anymore a « real » basesystem ?

Should not each package imported directly by the maintener here (for the DE),
so he's going to import (hopefully ?) only the real requirements so we'll be 
able to drop « more » unused packages maybe?

> Can we reach an agreement that this is the way to start the distro?
Sure (even if i'm not followed for the 2 points before :p )
