DESKTOP product set is a good template, as OSX platform is close to what 
DESKTOP is meant for (though not sure if anyone is using that, as linux 
distris usually build all they can given users might have all kind of 
hardware/platform variants where different parts are useful).

GEMINI was not (yet?) added, as it only targets special kind of hardware 
(convertible notebooks), which is not yet widespread and typical, so... 

Nothing else missing, from what I saw. All desktop-type-of-device-oriented 
apps (besides Kexi) listed + plugins for Okular and filemanager (not sure how 
filemanager plugins are useful though, perhaps only with Dolphin & similar).
