I have a working seed and meta package for "lubuntu-desktop", and I am
going to try to upload this to revu later today.

Status in “lxde-common” package in Ubuntu: Fix Released

Bug description:
Binary package hint: lxde

LXDE is an ultralightweight desktop, lighter than ubuntu and is suitable for pre-P3 computers as well as Apple G3 and G4 series.

We really need to have a comprehensive and self-standing lxubuntu-desktop package which pulls *all* packages necessary for the X-windows backend as well as LXDE desktop together with useful tools such as abiword, gnumeric and kazekahase.

It would be worthwhile to spin off a desktop Live CD, which is *part of the ubuntu proper* rather than a spinoff of a previous Ubuntu version

Here I would also request LXDE to be included into the main repository (I will file a separate bug report)
