Detailed Description

Why it would be good for Mageia to include it

This way it is possible to install more DEs simultaneously during the installation without using the custom package selection, that results more complicated for newbies (e.g. which package should they select for having both desktop? i don't think they do know).

Test case

Anything useful for QA and all testers to help debugging during the whole development cycle
