I would like to add a new category to the tree: lxde-base, to be used
for the LXDE desktop [1,2] packages, in correspondence to the categories
for the other desktop environments we have (gnome, kde, xfce). With the
help of a few users I have been developing ebuilds for these packages in
the lxde overlay [3], and I would like to move the ebuilds for the
release versions into the official tree now. (The overlay also contains
live svn ebuilds.)

LXDE currently has 14 packages that would go into this new category,
which is comparable to what xfce-base has. It also uses x11-wm/openbox
as default WM, and x11-misc/pcmanfm as default filemanager, although
these can be easily swapped for others.

Comments are welcome!
