I don't think I had any problems with loading delay of Mate as I was using lxdm to boot into Mate. Mate gui on Galaxy S2 is cool, thanks drebrez.

@ollieparanoid which license should we use by default for postmarketos packages? (It should be documented somewhere also)
@montvid I'll try to run MATE through lxdm to see if it solves that issue.

@drebrez: I mostly went with MIT as default license for postmarketOS-specific packages, because that seems to be what Alpine usese for most of their Alpine-specific packages (e.g. alpine-base).

(pmbootstrap is GPLv3+.)

I tried with lxdm like @montvid suggested but it still has that warning and the delay. I even tried installing alpine from scratch in a x86_64 virtual machine following the https://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/MATE guide and I have the same result.
Setting the default background I've no idea how to do it and starting in landscape is not easy too (see hildon for example).
At this point I suggest to merge this PR and the other things can be done in subsequent PRs.

@ollieparanoid

The PR works for me, at least with qemu and --spice. Code looks good!

Could you please update the MATE wiki page to reflect how to install it now, and the problems we still have with it?

Thanks for all the work you've put into this @drebrez!

PS: I laughed at this warning 😄
