I want to start a discussion about the package list on a possible

configurations when the direction is cleared. :)
So I've got some questions:
1. Configuration: Do we want (according to the gnome/desktop-livecd) a
base configuration and an "advanced" configuration? Of course only one
(the advanced) would be created and published. But having a standard
configuration would it make easier to change some things.
I would prefer just a standard configuration. I dont think a split is
necessary. The tools should be easy enough to use a single configuration
as a template to customize the packages further.
2. Browser/Email: Do we want Firefox and/or Evolution on the

How much space? If there is space, it might be useful to include them.
3. Do we want krusader and/or dolphin on the live-cd? In general:
Do we want duplications in the functionality of applications (not as
easy as it sounds; eg. amarok vs. noatun?
We have to get a complete list of potential duplicates and decide on a
case by case basis I think. While Krusader and Konqueror are both
advanced user tool, I would consider including Dolphin as the default
file manager (especially since it has got commonly requested features
like tree view and is scheduled to be the default for KDE 4) and
configure Konqueror to be the default web browser with the profile being
4. What about localisation? The kde-i18n-packages are not really
So perhaps putting them on a live-dvd would be the better idea
(gnome/desktop-livecd is fully localized)
You probably cant include Openoffice.org
if you include I18N packages. I
guess doing what GNOME live CD does makes sense. Do you plan on
providing a live DVD too?
b) An "advanced" CD uses ~705 MB.
Accessibility is also important. Do these sizes refer to compressed ones?
