I think there is a list of packages to install in the wiki, though I
can't find it right now.

As in getting those automatically installed? It's not a simple problem
because we need to support multiple distributions. I've seen
discussion about improving jhbuild <-> distribution integration
upstream, maybe that will help here. On the short time providing
good/updated info on the wiki would probably help a lot.
