Fedora Bugzilla only lists source components. I am not sure giving
special treatment to GNOME or KDE helps but if you feel there are
improvements to be made you can probably do the following

Ah, I haven't made myself clear.
There seems to be intentions to reduce the size of Fedora Core further.
To do this many packages are going to have to be removed, and they will
be placed into separate groups. The current work on anaconda (that's
frustrating many) is working toward making it easier to install from
non-FC sources like extras to aid in this move.
From conversations on the list (which are NOT gospel by any means) the
thinking seems to be that Fedora would be served up as groups of
components. For example, it may be that people wanting to run a desktop
would grab the core, x, gnome and games components and then install them
(most likely over the internet to simplify things even further).
However, if this is to happen then if someone needs to file a bug, they
will need a single place that lists all of the packages across fedora
(including core, gnome, x, etc). The bug poster shouldn't need to know
what group package x comes from to file a bug, but rather should just
find package x in the list and it would be placed in the appropriate
I'm just being a little future looking. Am I making more sense?
