Yeah, I'd like to clean this up. The sad thing is that even if I define
the minimal group as:
it merely drops it from 524MB/186 packages to 503MB/152 packages. I could
make it smaller by dropping yum/rpm and dependencies, but I can't in good
conscience ship an *installation target* minimal install that doesn't allow
you to get updates or add-in packages.
Yes, but its a good start and people can then review the dependencies
on those to see what is relevant or otherwise.
