Please don't shout at the VL developers.  What you have found is a bug.  SKEL should be there.  This isn't a final release yet.

I'm reporting several bugs in the appropriate place  :(

I'm really disappointed that gdm has been configured without the language menu.  One of the really nice things about the VL6 gdm configuration is that you could choose a different language on a session-by-session basis.  Trust me, if you need to work in a right-to-left language you probably don't want to do it in a left-to-right desktop and vice versa.  In any multilingual office or home this feature is likely to be used.  IMHO, it's a step backwards.

Thank you for not loading cairo-dock by default.

The look and feel (theming, wallpaper) isn't to my liking but that's a personal preference issue.  I don't remember the last time I said that about a VL release, though.   I usually like what the artistic side of the development team does.

If you're running Xfce why leafpad over mousepad?

I'm sure I'll come up with more as I use it more.

Any even soft target for a release yet? I have customized my install pretty heavliy, so im not submitting any complaints,  Im currently running the 3.3.5 kernel and its running great.
I did notice that no sendmail binary was installed when i installed the sendmail and sendmail-cf packages.

I am trying to finalize it within the next 2 weeks.
kernel 3.3.7 is in the untested repo.
