Don't forget that RPM changelogs have been deleted from specs in order
to save space. (I didn't even realize those were installed.)

I think the comment is halfway outdated: those GNOME apps were indeed
removed to save space, but I'm not sure that Matthias would put them
back even if there was enough room. None of those apps are really
necessary, and the plan is for some of them to be featured in GNOME
Software. So I don't think they're necessarily part of the Proper
Cool, but that's not a problem for making the experience consistent:
just do it in comps instead, put them in an option group.
Since the current framing of the proposal seems to be blocking on
fedora-next, can I do some judo and make the proposal "Let's decide on a
coherent GNOME package set and define that in comps instead of in the
spin kickstart" instead? If there's something desktop really really
wants that can't be done in comps - dropping stuff that's in @default ,
or something - then that will have to stay in the kickstart, but I think
we could move stuff like the above into comps.
