#13534 new enhancement

Split app_server and all core GUI applications, translators, etc. into a haiku_desktop package

Description

As in title. This will remove a lot of dependencies from the core haiku package and potentially make bootstraps easier, as well as making it possible to boot the system in text-only (consoled) mode.

Perhaps after this, we can merge some of the other packages (like userlandfs) back into the haiku package, since it'll be smaller...

Tentatively assigning to myself.

But the post-installation of system add-ons such as translators must not be omitted.

I'm not sure what you mean by this...? The change proposed here should mostly be an "under the hood" one; users shouldn't see anything different in their system.

I don't really understand what we gain from this: there are already boostrap specifics so that dependencies are kept minimal. Looks like unnecessary hassle.

-1 from me.

The hassle should be entirely in the implementation, and after that should be rather minimal, no? Hence why I've listed this as an "enhancement". If I or someone else gets around to it, great; if not, it's not a major loss. But even if we do go with it, it shouldn't really increase complexity (but rather decrease it overall).
