 From a user perspective, it's still good news. IIRC bill-auger is 
working on LXDE version of parabola (so the user will be able to choose 
between MATE or LXDE).

In regards to OpenRC, I hope there's coordination between those building 
any MATE OpenRC isos and any LXDE OpenRC isos (which I think there were 
also hints at), as similar efforts may become duplicated, same goes for 
efforts towards the graphical installer ... I seem to remember there 
being two different repositories for this last time I looked; if they 
are essentially the same software, then a proper discussion probably 
needs to be had on how developers can work together so that they can be 
merged (because it wouldn't be good having two lots of the same 
[installer] package). If not, and I am talking rubbish, then feel free 
to correct then ignore me completely.

I would also like to reiterate that it would also be nice to have 
install scripts for MATE and LXDE on the CLI iso and perhaps even on the 
graphical isos as a sort-of backup, if they're not already.

Also, I look forward to any progress on PenParabola, AFAIK, there isn't 
such a thing as a fully-libre pen-testing distro on the surface of this 
planet, so it'd be nice achievement to have.

Finally, thanks everybody for your hard labor, it's easy for me to sit 
back and make couch suggestions without actually doing much work, but 
ultimately it's you lot who will decide and shape parabola,
