The desktop example contains all of GNOME, when choosing GNOME, which
provides an email client, Web browser, and lots of other things.

Additional packages like those you mention could be added to the
‘packages’ field, in which case they will be installed globally, like
the rest of GNOME.

I wouldn’t recommend adding those 4 packages you mention by default
though, because it’s really a matter of choice (and it’s redundant with
what GNOME provides, I think.)


Thanks for your feedback!
