It seems to be that time again when task-kde-desktop needs to be updated. And I think that it would be better to send one single bug with all the changes to that we want to do.

Currently task-kde-desktop recommends:
- k3b.
  Does anybody uses their cd burner nowadays?
  -> I'm inclined towards a remove from task-kde-desktop
  -> lisandro via irc suggest to remove it and to add to kde-full
- dragonplayer
  Already installed by kde-standard
  -> My suggestion: remove
- kdesudo
kde4 based, we also have kdesu which uses sudo by default (but it's shipped in a libexec dir, so it's not really for "public" use), but at the same time upstream disrecommends launching qt apps as root.
- apper
I'm not sure if this should be replaced by plasma-discover, I guess Matthias is the right person to make a call here.
- gimp
While it's a great piece of software, is it really worth having it in the default installation?

Other desktops seems to also provide:
- xsane / some way to use a scanner
We have skanlite (currently suggested by kde-standard) and/or digikam, should we recommend these?

Other packages:
- kdeaccessibility depends upon jovie (KDE4 based), kaccessible (KDE4 based), kmouth (KDE4 based), I'm not even sure if these are usable right now. :/
- should we recommend/suggest krita?
- Does anybody really uses dragonplayer? Shouldn't we recommend vlc instead?

Happy hacking,
