Ooops, that was me. Sorry. I probably confused myself -- thinking it
was the spreadsheet that Kevin W. started. I just re-found Kevin's link
but when I visit it I see that it's the same list. So I guess the first
list was re-formatted.

Perhaps one could add rows of packages below the distrowatch formatted
list? Claws-mail isn't 'essential' but pgadmin3 would be important to
have imo.

Fine by me, though I'd vote for another sheet vs a wiki page since one
needs a password to access the wiki.  (And I'm 'Ms Debian', not Mr,
fwiw. I'm currently spending most of my time on LMDE which uses the
Debian testing repo).
