I think the Ambassadors are stake holders here as it can influence
the ability to distribute Fedora, also we're closest to our users.
For EMEA there's only one limitation - we should be able fit all
four spins in 32/64 bit versions to Multi Desktop Live DVD.
Christoph mentioned he's willing to sacrifice Sugar offering.
What about other regions? Is the CD size the must? Or we can break it?
Talking about production costs of medias, users able to use different
methods to install Fedora etc., enough size flash drive availability/
affordability... Any thoughts?
I personally do not care how big the size, as long as it is
a live media. Users would prefer a distro that can be tested directly on
the device prior to installation and after installation of the
operating system, all the main program (music player, video player, office
suite, graphic suite etc.) is installed. But if so, we must ensure that
users can get it easily and cheap. By the way, spread Fedorato the rental
store CD / DVD and improve the program Freemedia. Please see
the debian live media, the size about 1.1 GB. But we must still provide an
option for anyone who wants an operating system that is no
larger than 700MB. Maybe we could call it "minimal media".
