OK, so we’re left with the need for a smaller metapackage then.

That looks alright.

Yes. Actually gnome-core alone is launchable, but you won’t do much with
it. I’ve added the base theming and enough applications to actually do

Yup, NM is only in the full task.

This would need to be tested, but 1+2 without recommends sounds like the
good thing to add. We could remove the mail client (evolution) if it
turns out too big, nowadays the media player looks more important.
How should I name the new metapackage? My first thought is just to move
these packages from gnome-desktop-environment to gnome-core, and to make
gnome-core the key package.
I’m adding -release to the CC list to see if this suits them.
