Later today, from 17:00 to 18:00 UTC, the Spins SIG is having a meeting.
Besides the continuing effort to improve the details in our
documentation, our agenda shows a few spins ready for our review.
Additionally, with the Education spin, now in Spins_Ready_For_Wrangler,
there's the use of --excludedocs and --instLangs options to %packages
that we need form an opinion on (and put in our guidelines accordingly).
If you have something to say on either of these subjects, please be
around for the meeting, or let us know what you think through the

So, reading this there is a hard limit set to the size of LiveCDs, which
just so happens to be the hard limit I had in mind anyway.
Spin Maintainers are urged to make sure their spins are under 700M (ls
-h - that 700M), bearing in mind that a spin that is oversized will not

Some CD drives/media will allow you to burn up to 703. The size was
close enough to 700 that we let it through rather than not compose that
image. Otherwise you may have to use a DVD writable media, or use
livecd-iso-to-disk to put the live image on a USB stick.
For Beta and later releases, we won't release any livecd target that is
over 700 M

We've discussed live media growing beyond a 4GB squashfs, it's time to vote.
Can I get enough +1s and +0s on the following:
Are we allowing live media with squashfs images over 4GB?
(Note that I'm going to count the votes of all maintainers, Spins SIG
members, representatives of other parties involved (rel-eng, infra,
board), including our Wrangler, and keep a separate count for all votes
should I get much feedback from, say, users).
