Just for the record, I'm not happy about this.
Why could this not have been fixed in any case, it was obviously a
mistake/oversight, creates a regression for kfreebsd-*, and I provided a
patch which is trivial.
How are users expected to be test GNOME anyway on kfreebsd if they're
prevented from installing it since the rc1 installer. As a 'new' arch,
people typically don't have installed systems to use as a basis to try
Are kfreebsd-*'s GNOME CD-1 etc. going to be able to build if
task-gnome-desktop is uninstallable? Is there any point building them?
Furthermore what about tech-ctte decision #688772 that squeeze->wheezy
upgrades (on GNU/Linux) should not pick up network-manager as a
dependency? Is that would what happen if they have task-gnome-desktop
installed and it Depends now on network-manager-gnome?
