GNOME downgrade does not work With the new version of GNOME (3.22) introduced in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4, downgrading GNOME from version 3.22 to 3.14 using the "yum downgrade" or "dnf downgrade" commands is no longer possible. The only workaround lies in replacing the GNOME-related packages with their old versions. If you decide to downgrade manually, read the GNOME 3.16-3.22 release notes to find which functionalities you are losing.

Describe the issue: 

With rhel7.4 we are going to update whole gnome to new version 3.22. Together with this new release we are also going to introduce coupe of brand new pkgs and few renaming and splitting of existing ones. This change makes downgrade near to impossible. It would be nice to document this fact in our desktop guides or release notes.

We have been in this situation also in rhel7.2 time frame too. Everything ok back than so it should be fine now too.  

Suggestions for improvement:
