PLEASE do not make a basic-install larger with something what maybe for someone
nice, thats from a user which installs "bash-completion" on each machine after
setup, there are people out there using other shells and the base-setup has to
be as small as possible
it hurts me that cross-dependencies and automatically installed
services gettng larger and larger with every realease
/dev/sdb1 ext4 6,0G 1,8G 4,2G 30% /
this machine is only needed for netatalk, samba and gedit
additionally to 3 admin-guis over X-Forwarding are installed
1.8 GB is really much for that usecase and it was a hard
piece of work to get all away which is not needed
somebody will come out now and telling me that disk-space
is cheap these days without realizing that SAN-Storage is
not cheap, having 20 virtual machines on a host muliplies
the wasted space and the useless time for updates of
packages never really used is forgotten too
it's time to get a solution for soft-dependencies to get
rid of packages with additional functionality possible
not needed and the "everything should work for everybody"
out of the box thoughts are making setups big with a small
benefit for only some peopole while others are frustrated
remember: every package/software/library which is not installed
is not vulnerable!
