An additional or alternative proposal: a more comprehensive mailing list,
debian-desktop, which coordinates the desktop as a whole. This could
include making the libraries work right, but it would also be on-topic to
discuss how various apps interoperate; making sure the desktop defaults
are nice; making sure the core Gnome apps (panel, gmc) are always working;
talk about extending the menu system to handle large icons (for example);
talk about making documentation easy to access; organizing theme
packaging; designing an easy way to install all vital desktop components
automatically; deciding which packages are vital components; etc.
"GUI theoreticians" a la gnome-gui-list are explicitly off-topic. ;-)
Practical proposals only.
