--- Comment #2 from Stefan B. <sblachmann@gmail.com> ---
The decision documented in the freshports package logs to make that name change
of the "gnome3" package to "gnome" is imho an idiotic thing.

It took almost one month until gnome reappeared in the repos.
It was not available using pkg that whole time, neither as "gnome" nor as
"gnome3", in latest as well as quarterly repos.

The same goes with "xfce4" which has similiarly been renamed to "xfce", also
reappeared only a month later, and still disappears from the pkg database from
time to time.

These useless name changes only frustrate users and should be avoided at all
