Having a quick look at it, it seems that one should follow the guidelines
in here: https://wiki.debian.org/DebianDesktop/Tasks

Maybe we could seek for advice / help from the desktop team, which I have
now cc'd.
Besides, the MATE user community may want to agree first on which packages
to be
installed within the mate-desktop task.

I'd be happy to have a go at producing the task package, but I'd probably
need a fair bit
of hand holding for the beginning.
