Yea, sorry about that...

Or neither? Space permitting...
Unfortunately, the best way to clear out space that I can see
is switch to latin, indic, and cjk liveCDs. Which... yuk.
Yes, but we're most probably going to do this sooner or later anyway so
might as well do it now? The savings are substantial IIRC and as a data
point Mandriva is doing this already with Mandriva One.
The hard part is deciding what regions to target; you have to take into
- input methods
- fonts (though I'm firmly in the camp that even a US english install
needs to have good enough font coverage to such that e.g.
isn't a Pango-block fest)
- other things I can't remember right now
and do the cut such that the free space is split evenly. It's just a
really hard problem.
