When I installed MATE on my basic Raspbian install I followed your instructions here.
I noticed your instructions had this part TBD...
Running MATE automatically at boot time
TBD [Haven't figured this out yet.]
The MATE project have not yet released their own X display manager, so you need to install a separate display manager. (I would recommend LightDM)
Once that is done it should auto-magically go to the graphical login menu at startup.

I realize it will almost certainly be heavier weight than LXDE or Xfce, but I'm hoping that it will still run decently under Raspbian on the Raspberry Pi. Of course, it will run much better if and when an X server that implements GPU acceleration is available.
So far, I've built about a half dozen source packages with only a few glitches. Hopefully, the other 40 or so will build as easily over the next two or three days. I'll post back here when I have a repository available that others can install and test out the MATE.
I hope there are other fans of MATE that would like to see this classic Linux desktop environment available on the Raspberry Pi.
