Bill,

Is there any particular reason to pull

@perl-web or
@python-web
(and likewise @rubyonrails, and @php)
to the DVD?
That was introduced in the commit [1].

I don't disagree in having those groups, but pulling them onto the DVD
will probably pull a huge bunch of deps in.

Am I just wrong here?

Matthias
