okay, I misunderstood the point than. However, you can also recommend always
to do gnome updates only when you are not logged in.

these points would have been critical rated bugs for KDE in the past. I assume
the same rules do apply also for Gnome.

IMHO an optional step, as long the old menu is still supported and working.

These reasons are IMHO no reasons to double the resources needed for building
and on the mirrors. We also never did provide seperated versions in the past
for KDE/Gnome minor updates in the past on our servers.
