We are coming up on Beta and thats when we start wanting to make sure
we hit our size target (700MB cd).
Beta-TC4 Xfce is at 756M
The issues around perl have been cleaned up, so removing perl only
removes the xfce4-sensors-plugin (and all the perl modules).
I went ahead and pushed a exo update to drop the perl update in it:
karma very welcome. Hopefully we can push it stable before Beta freeze.
With that update and removing perl and xfce4-sensors saves us ~40MB or
so on the uncompressed image (likely less on the iso).
I also removed:
(only used by really old printers)
(large and not needed)
Those should save another ~40MB uncompressed (less on iso).
Also, I did a:
rm -f /usr/share/icons/HighContrast/icon-theme.cache
which the desktop folks are already doing. This cache can be
regenerated easily and we aren't using that icon theme by default.
This saves ~105MB uncompressed.
So, hopefully with all these we will drop the ~56MB we need.
If not we will need to look at more savings.
