I really doubt anybody is using the gnome-extras meta-package. So, unless
I hear any objections, I'll be removing it soon.
It initially added with the purpose to install GNOME plus a lot of other
GNOME related packages (and, BTW, it is missing a lot of them). But
what's the point? None; it's a very personal choice to decide what to
Some time ago, I thought it could be useful for live cds, but the contents
don't fit a CD properly. However, it might be of some use for live dvds,
but even there, the same problem arises (very personal choice).
Therefore there is no point in keeping it.
