If vino is installed but not gnome-remote-desktop, the "screen sharing" entry in gnome control center is missing.
Maybe gnome-remote-desktop (or one of its dependencies) is a (optional) dependency of vino.

Additional info:
* vino 3.22.0+19+g15eb3c5-1
* gnome-remote-desktop 0.1.6-1
* gnome-control-center 3.30.1-1

Steps to reproduce:
`pacman -S vino`
`pacman -Rsc gnome-remote-desktop`
`gnome-control-center sharing`
-> "screen sharing" is missing

`pacman -S vino gnome-remote-desktop`
`gnome-control-center sharing`
-> "screen sharing" is present
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  vino doesn't work in wayland, gnome-control-center hides the screen sharing option for vino in wayland sessions.

Nothing in vino depends on gnome-remote-desktop. It's the screen-sharing panel that needs gnome-remote-desktop. The only problem here is that vino relies on gnome-control-center for configuration, but gnome-control-center isn't in depends anyways.

Maybe this could then be in optdepends? Or this is rather a upstream bug?
