Thank you for doing something about this!

gnome-common and gnome-desktop are libraries, not core applications.

gnome-doc-utils is not a core application.

gnome-mpv is not core.

I don’t quite know, is gnome-vfs the same as gvfs?

This appears to be a codec pack or something (?), not an application.

Parabola GNU/Linux-libre packaging shows that these are not the same
app and should not be renamed.

address@hidden ~]$ pacman -Ss shotwell
community/shotwell 2:0.30.4-1
    A digital photo organizer designed for the GNOME desktop environment
address@hidden ~]$ pacman -Ss gnome-photos
extra/gnome-photos 3.32.0-1 (gnome)
    Access, organize, and share your photos on GNOME
address@hidden ~]$ pacman -Ss rhythmbox
extra/rhythmbox 3.4.3-1
    Music playback and management application
community/ario 1.6-1
    A GTK client for MPD inspired by Rhythmbox but much lighter and faster
address@hidden ~]$ pacman -Ss gnome-music
extra/gnome-music 1:3.32.1-1 (gnome)
    Music player and management application

Well, they have two names and others frequently refer to them by
e.g. Epiphany and not GNOME Web, including Epiphany developers.

Of course, there are more non-packaged applications.

I also remember
who says, for example, that gnome-tweaks is *not* core.

Yes, I agree, that should be the goal.
