That just brought another thought of mine to foreground, given the 
development style of DragonFly; just as we give utmost priority to fix 
bugs in the core system, I thinkw we should also prepare a list that 
contains a list of packages that are necessary from a general user's 

We have to put personal differences aside, i.e., "I am only going to fix 
Gnome because that's what I use," is kind of attitude which is absolutely 
not called for.

To summarise, we need to compile a list of pkgsrc packages that are used 
most by DragonFly users.  Off the top of my head, I can say people will 
vote for Gnome and KDE.  The priority assigned to getting packages fixed 
will be dependant on the number of votes received.  If something like that 
can be achieved, it would be quite nice, from my point of view.
