What's next?

I've seen that nothing is tagged (or almost nothing) in the lxqt chapter. I
could start building it, but maybe somebody else is doing that.

Also, there are a few remaining packages in the server and networking
chapters. I have set up a virtual network (with two VMs), which would allow to
test them. So maybe it is better if I start with those.

Last but not least, there are many GNOME packages, which I am not sure which
purpose they serve... and I am not sure I would know how to test them.
