Description of problem:
Lean and mean GUI for Enterprise use that targets getting the job done quickly without fluff.
I can do this in 2022

Just came by to say I enthusiastically urge you to add xfce. It's perfect for a business desktop.
Adding my voice to the interest in this.
Thanks for the input Thomas and Pat.
I will do this in the coming weeks.
Thanks Mukundan! Lack of XFCE - and time - are the only things preventing me from migraining to CS9. Which I need to do before FC34 EOLs. :)
Many thanks, Mukundan! I sure do appreciate it! I can't wait to adopt RHEL9 with xfce! I try to use RHEL wherever I can (as opposed to CentOS or Fedora), so having my favorite DE on RHEL will be perfect.
Using this mock chroot:
grabbed the Xfce4 group SRPM set from fc35 and built it for el9.
I have just filed requests for epel9 branch. I will start building the packages in the coming days.
I will start building this soon. Branches are created.
Very good news ! thanks for the effort !

I have finally built most of the core packages. terminal, ristretto and a bunch of plugins remain.
Assuming no issues, I expect xfce 4.16 to be available for testing within a week.
Sorry about the delay.
I'm interested in this for sure.
FEDORA-EPEL-2022-5fe886dfa9 has been submitted as an update to Fedora EPEL 9. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-EPEL-2022-5fe886dfa9
alright folks, this is done. mousepad did not build and I need to figure out what's going on. Other than that, Xfce should work as well as it does on Fedora. I tested these builds on RHEL 9 with EPEL enabled and did not notice any issues or odd behavior.
the karma for stable is high and time for stable is long - this is intentional.
test and provide feedback please.

Is there a comps.xml bug for EPEL9 xfce desktop group?

> Is there a comps.xml bug for EPEL9 xfce desktop group?
there isn't one. I did not have time to update comps earlier. Now, there is PR for comps.
Once merged, it should be possible to install xfce base packages as a group.
the update is on its way to stable.
xfce is now in comps.
