Garnome Minimal Install?

Well, now I’m running into problems with parts of Gnome I don’t really need. I’ve no use for text to speech apps or alternative input apps. Too bad they are considered part of the Garnome desktop base install. It would be much nicer if there was a minimal install option. At least then you could get the basic stuff built and come back later to add in the “fun” stuff. Instead I have to let it run, wait for it to fail, look at why it’s failing and decide if I can fix it, want to fix it or even need the functionality offered.

Oh well. I guess the point of Garnome is to build a full Gnome install, or is it… Seems there is some discussion on the mailing lists over what should and shouldn’t be included. Eventually I’ll figure it all out and at least get some minimal install that does what I want.
