well in your personal overlay if you change the ebuild and place it in your personal overlay. It may be possible.

I have no idea if gnome depends on those.

2nd way is to uninstall gnome-light meta-ebuild and just have the desired packages installed. You do not need those meta ebuilds at all.

I switched over from gnome a year ago to i3wm, but i used to use only a few gnome packages on my box without a problem.

E.g. gnome-screensaver is only "bloatware" as the stock xscreensaver for example does a far better job.

Gentoo is about choice. Your choice which packages you install.

Well i used for a while mate desktop which is / was a gnome fork. some peeps used for ages gnome 2. but as I have seen from far distance gnome 3 is not the best in beeing small. my personal opinion.

thats why i used to i3wm. its small and beautiful. I realized it was time to just use the box, i do not need those bells and whistles. after so many years of gentoo i know my commands so its faster to just type then in the dbar, i think is used in i3wm, and thats it.

I really do not miss those blown up desktop environments anymore now after a few months of i3wm.

i liked gnome2, i migrated to xfce4 (both are very similar only xfce4 is lighter than gnome2) and have no problems with nm or gdm being forced upon me. i have gnome3 on the desktop but that's because i was building stuff to test against unpublished wiki pages.
