All you've mentioned are the same packages I already know about:

- kdebase (or some similar package in KDE)
- gcompris
- freeciv

If there's really a lot of packages, I'd like actual data as to what they
are; vague descriptions of 'several' doesn't really help frame the
discussion of the amount of work.
