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

libnss-mdns, anacron, eject, iw, alsa-utils
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?
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 great).
