Inspired by recent fedora-devel list discussion, here's a patch
save some space from images by excluding obsoleted packages.
Arguably those packages should just die and not hang around in the
repos, but these undead packages seem fairly persistent...
This is what I see with F18 install DVD:
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 4687134720 Nov 12 21:10 Fedora-18-x86_64-DVD.iso
With the patch:
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 4550819840 Nov 12 21:01 Fedora-18-x86_64-DVD.iso
The idea of the patch makes sense, but I'm surprised that what you list
below really amounts to 130MB off the DVD, given that the biggest package
is grub's 6MB. There could be dependencies that fall off, but that many?
