Re: Dependencies of meta-pkgs/gnome [was Re: Adding a gnome-lite package]

So here comes an idea: what about renaming meta-pkgs/gnome to
meta-pkgs/gnome-desktop to match upstream, and then we create another
package (be it gnome-lite, gnome-pkgsrc, gnome-suggested,
gnome-supported, gnome, or whatever) that provides what *we*, pkgsrc,
think is a more reasonable set for our users?  This package would not
include stuff that is known to be broken in NetBSD, for example.

gnome-suggested could be the same as gnome-pkgsrc (option driven, we can suggest options via option framework).

I personally would prefer keeping the number of basically equivalent packages small and introduce some options there. Otherwise the amount of new packages switches from self-maintaining package list to search most fitting package.
