Right now, I have just a minimal install. How can I install only the required packages for gnome, with no extra cruft?

Use the following commands:

sudo yum grouplist #lists available groups
sudo yum install @gnome #install gnome

If you have a minimal install, you will have to manually change the default systemd target to (or runlevel 5, in previous terms). Refer:

Great reply, I appreciate it! It looks like installing the gnome group without the libreoffice group was what I wanted. Now I just have to decide if I really want to throw > 1GB of packages on this laptop.
