If I said this it was wrong. The documentation mentions the "desktop"
tasks and states that Gnome is installed if you choose it, along with
other things needed to get a full desktop environment. It took some
time to find that in the documentation because it was a bit hidden.

Documentation names this option the "Desktop environment option" and
lists no similar option despite manual package selection. I'll better
change the commit message to mirror that.
