Nice... are available anywhere some notes about the design concepts

I think (if I recall correctly) we were taking the "what would help
designers - so also people on the design team or those who want to get
involved" approach. Admittedly, that's a pretty broad one and I think we
mentioned that having sample content and introductions either somewhere
on the spin or on a bookmarked page would be good.

I don't think CD size is a realistic target, my suggestion is to aim for

Well, it depends on what we end up with. For example OpenOffice Impress
is a *major* space consumer. Basically, it means that we're using about
150 MB for a single application. Excluding that one would bring us down
to 750 MB, which isn't too far from CD-size. However, since we're just
starting to talk about it, I guess we'll just see what comes close.
In the end, it might well be a 2 GB target - I don't know, yet.

provide the list of packages?
Finally, I've thrown something in the wiki -
has all the
details. I didn't include a real rationale for now, so feel free to rant! ;)
Aside from that, the page looks really cool (thanks Mel!) - if anybody
has package suggestions or further ideas, just add them there.
Cheers & Happy New Year!
