We have one main edition which is gnome and a KDE community edition that may be a main in the future
Then we have light/mini editions for legal reasons and some community editions - a bit confusing perhaps
But a normal user should select either the main or the KDE full versions
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
