The system is in use, but has various tasks left to do to be complete as its reference implementation.

A TODO file with the light-desktop package provides the list of dependencies and status. <>   (other dependency packages have TODO files too)

The key tasks to do now are:

* update pcmanfm (currently using wip version but has bugs)
* include all on a LiveCD
* GUI around pkgin
* complete the netbsd-light-desktop-artwork package
* complete the netbsd-icon-theme package
* split nautilus into nautilus-extensions which is used by gnome-system-tools
* test the gnome-system-tools (including superuser access via GUI)
* test system-config-printer-gnome
* package guvcview  (but is very Linux specific so test mplayer or xine with tv://)
* package chromium (use firefox for now)
* package software-properties-gtk
* package xfburn
* port simple-scan (it uses udev) or find alternative
* package xfce4-power-manager or alternative
