Hi E.J. Zufelt.

I have realized that what I was wrong in an earlier post.

The packages that live-helper defines as "gnome" is the following

#include <gnome-core>
gdm-themes gnome-desktop-environment system-config-printer gnome-screensaver
gnome-themes-extras rhythmbox synaptic

which, as far as I understand, means that live-helper has made a
decision on what gnome *is*, rather than just accepting what
gnome-desktop-environment pulls in. E.g., rythmbox is not pulled in by
gnome-desktop-environment or by gnome-core but by the task "gnome",
which however not is included in the list of packages above.

As Chris Lamb pointed out:

And since gnome-orca fits well into a CD, I think it should be

I don't know about accessibility program, but I see that there is a
meta-package called gnome-accessibility, which pulls in gnome-orca. If
there is room left on the CD, perhaps explicitly including
gnome-accessibility would be a good idea?

Another route would be to make gnome-desktop-environment depend on
gnome-accessibility (or gnome-orca) rather than just recommend on it.
