The F19 DVD is currently *way* over size. (i686: 417MB, x86_64: 311MB).
That's almost certainly more than can be fixed by trimming around the
edges; we need to remove actual functionality that's on the DVD.

Options include:

1) One/some of the desktops

F19 DVD currently includes
- GNOME
- KDE
- XFCE
- LXDE
- Sugar
- MATE (new in F19)
- Cinnamon (new in F19)

2) The web server environment

Contains web server and web server runtimes (PHP, JBoss, Mongo, perl,
python, rails)

3) The developer & content creator workstation

Contains the web server stuff above, Eclipse, developer tools, designer
tools, Fedora packaging tools, and so on.

Opinions?
