There's been some talk recently of having a re-chartered Base WG maintain a
functional minimal install (as well as the container base image). That
seems like it might serve some of the Secondary arches better (although
for others, actual Server seems appropriate too). And, I guess that's
still separate from whether Server should _also_ present a minimal
environment of its own — that's a question of audience and use cases, I
I'm of the opinion that Server Edition should realistically be as minimal as we are
willing to support. That's not the same thing as the build-your-own-OS case of the
minimal environment today.
If Server Edition isn't small enough for some use cases, then we should identify those
specifically and decide if it's worth adjusting the contents of the Server Edition to
handle that case or if it belongs as part of another (perhaps new) Edition.
