Re: Renaming gnome3* packages to gnome*

With the new naming scheme, it doesn't make sense to keep package names

opinion unnecessary, since there isn't a huge difference between the 3.3x and the 40.x GNOME releases.

I was slightly wrong here. gnome-desktop will use the new versioning
scheme (40.0), but we might need 2 separate packages, one each for GTK3
and GTK4, for example: gnome-desktop3, gnome-desktop4. [0]

These are still valid, IMO
