That seems like a premature conclusion. Packages get more features
and grow bigger and get more dependencies.
While that is true... that packages get bigger and more deps are added... that does NOT
explain why the stock kickstart KDE spin I built would be 1.6 GB vs. the 697 MB iso Fedora
releases. Nor does it explain an increase of about 300 MB (compressed) in my remix... but
I'll keep looking for clues.
Going over 2G might reveal bugs in some tools. That could perhaps
explain the isohybrid error you mentioned.
