Yeah, i could see the three above.
Personally I hoped that we could finally make the Desktop spin where we pick
the sane defaults to include on the CD, everything else could be gotten
through the remote repo. We've wanted to do this for years, but just haven't
had the setup/methodolgy of doing it without pissing off people like... KDE
As to whats going on with the KDE spin, well I'm letting that happen naturally
and driven by the KDE sig. And yeah, things are getting a little silly over
there, but who knows, once they start looking at CD sizes, they might start
thinking harder about what they're tossing in the mix.
