Regarding GNOME Core Applications and modifications to current "gnome" package, FYI, I have filed this

Recently, I have been given this link ( which lists all GNOME Core Applications that are to be added to guix's gnome package.

Whether or not to do this, I think the package with the name "gnome" in any distribution should always reflect the vanilla gnome suite released by GNOME Project. Any modification to it, I think, should be packaged under different name like "gnome-minimal" or gnome-extras" etc. This can be a good standard.

My suggestion is,
gnome --> GNOME Core Libraries+Utilities+Services+Apps
gnome-minimal --> GNOME Core Libraries+Utilities+Services ( Provides only dm, wm, menus, settings etc. witout any apps)

Also, based on the above, I think we also need to create/enable new value "gnome-minimal" for the data type "gnome-desktop-configuration" of the variable "gnome-desktop-service-type". Value "gnome" can still be default though. Power users can change the value to "gnome-minimal".

Thank you!
