Bug#774987: xfce cd lacks gnome-keyring, so network-manager cannot connect to many networks

Package: debian-cd
Severity: normal

gnome-keyring is a recommend of network-manager-gnome. While
network-manager-gnome is included on the xfce CD, gnome-keyring is not.
It should be.

I noticed this when installing stable, but testing appears to also have
the problem. An install from the xfce CD w/o network will result in an
installed system that lacks gnome-keyring. When attempting to connect
to a wifi network that needs a password, network-manager will
immediately fail, and display a very non-useful "the network connection
has been disconnected" alert. Many users at this point will be stuck and
not able to figure out why their system is broken.

Adding gnome-keyring as a depend to tasks that include network-manager-gnome
would be one way to solve this, if fixing the debian-cd recommends resolution
code is intractable.

It would probably be a good idea to compare installs from CD with and
w/o network, and see what recommended packages get left off. There are
likely other land-mines like this one lurking.
