one of the common themes of the F14 review cycle was ridiculing the lack
of an office suite on the desktop image, particularly given the presence
of 'useless' things like planner (I'm paraphrasing from the reviews, not
giving my own personal opinion). I know we have good arguments against
including an office suite, and I suspect planner is just in there as a
hangover from when we tried to include GNOME Office, but there does seem
to be a consistent impression in reviews that the current package choice
It's all a workaround for the fact that we don't have an application
It's worth at least considering going to 1GB to have
LibreOffice, I think, and if we don't, we should drop planner from the
desktop spin as well as dropping LibreOffice, to avoid the apparent
weirdness of having a planning tool but no other office apps.
I really don't like not having a CD sized image; this has all been
discussed in the past on the list.
It's unfortunate conflation that the larger distributable DVD ==
anaconda OS; removing that conflation would allow us to have a larger
image that included openoffice and of course any other popular apps
This path would be extending the anaconda live installer to be able to
*also* optionally consume RPMs from the DVD image for install, or
actually, just default to a regular RPM installation, and duplicate
the space between the live image and the included RPMs for the base.
