The patch also needs task-gnustep-desktop added as an option to
task-desktop, otherwise the live image ships with gnome:

Also, a question - your patch does not include default applications
like firefox, gimp etc, which the other desktop environments ship
with. I understand there are gnustep alternatives to these, is this
why you did not include them?

They should never be on the gnustep desktop task, as they are not consistent with the user interface. And instead of causing inconsistency in the interface by including them, I think it's better, to just not have them, at the moment.

The default menus in the live image I've
built reference at least firefox, gimp and openoffice (which fail to
launch as they are not installed - from a user perspective this is not

Were you testing with wmaker menu system? If no firefox, gimp, openoffice is installed, there should absolutely be no menu entry for it. Where does it
come from?
